'The Hindu ; New Delhi, Feb. 17:

Industry body Internet Service Provider Association of India (ISPAI) said that rates of Internet and broadband services may go up under the new licence framework due to high entry fee proposed by the Department of Telecommunications (DoT).

DoT has proposed to charge one-time entry fee of Rs 15 crore for a national level unified licence (UL) compared with Rs 30 lakh which companies pay for Internet services at present.

DoT has not done anything new as per the proposed format for unified licence regime. They are going ahead with the option to continue the old licence format along with a new national level unified licence that will cost Rs 15 crore.

If Internet service providers opt for UL, then cost of Internet and broadband services will go up, ISPAIs President Rajesh Charia told PTI.

In the new licensing regime, DoT should allow Internet telephony which would lead to low-cost call service that would benefit even rural areas of the country where illiteracy is very high.'


MTNL/BSNL already pan India so can we assume their charges will remain unchanged.
Also why will ISP go for UL unless they gain something extra out of it without burdening the end user.

Its "one time entry fee" that has been increased. Even if companies transfer this cost to consumers this will be one time only or they will recover it gradually from customers. Nothing to be worried about.

Earlier they paid less for the spectrum and pocketed the rest.
Now they are paying "fair price" for the spectrum, and the rest will be paid by us.

As I said before, This country is going backwards.
