WiMAX Forum lauds DoT over spectrum allocation
TT Bureau |  |  08 Aug 2008

The WiMAX Forum, a not-for-profit organization that certifies broadband products, lauded the Department of Telecommunications of India over the decision to allocate and auction 2.3 and 2.5 GHz frequency band in the country.


With the availability of the key bands for WiMAX technology in the country, consumers hailing from all diverse economic and social needs will be able to access indiscriminate broadband connectivity, said the Forum.


“WiMAX technology meets a number of needs for India''s diverse population, bridging the digital divide while providing a platform to meet the future demands for 4G mobile broadband services,” said Ron Resnick, president of the WiMAX Forum.


The auction will enable two 20 MHz blocks in both the 2.3 and 2.5 GHz bands. The government also announced that blocks in the 700 MHz and 3.3-3.6 GHz bands will be auctioned as they become available to offer Fixed WiMAX and rural wireless broadband segments to consumers.
