COAI welcomes TRAI’s inputs

Chennai: COAI, the representative body of the Indian telecommunications industry, has welcomed the recommendations of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on resolution of various issues – the proposed national RoW portal; exemption of RoW charges for five years for expeditious laying of common ducts; streamlining RoW permission process with more participation of utility departments and central agencies; uniform restoration charges; auction of mid-band spectrum and assignment of backhaul spectrum.

These recommendations by TRAI will make the 4G services and infrastructure more robust and accelerate implementation of 5G technology in India, it said and added that TRAI’s thrust on resolution of RoW issues is much needed.
