PV Desk : The application submission date of spectrum auction for 4G service is tomorrow but the mobile network operators (MNOs) is still bargaining for reducing price.
As business case is related here so some issues are required to be reconsidered, said the MNOs.
Talking to BSS, Association of Mobile Telecom Operators of Bangladesh (AMTOB) Secretary General T I M Nurul Kabir today said the MNOs are discussing some issues individually with the telecom regulators.
“As business case is involved here that is why they (MNOs) are reviewing the guidelines and discussing on some queries,” he added.
Replying to a query regarding the submission of application tomorrow, Kabir said he is optimistic but “everything would be cleared tomorrow”.
In the first week of last December, BTRC announced the 4G/LTE Licensing Guidelines and spectrum auction roadmap in less than a week after getting the final nod from Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
According to the spectrum action roadmap, officials said BTRC invited application from the MNOs on December 4 while the date for submission of application to the commission is January 14.
