Default 3G permit auction in Jan

3G permit auction in Jan

Dhaka, Sep 21 (bdnews24.com) - The telecom ministry and the sector's regulatory body are preparing to host 3G licence auction at the start of the next year.

"We are already near the end of taking opinions of stakeholders, specialists and the public about the draft 3G guidelines," Sunil Kanti Bose, the Secretary of the Ministry of Posts & Telecommunications, told bdnews24.com.

He continued that the primary guideline draft will be completed by October and sent to related stakeholders, including the Bangladesh Telecommunications Regulatory Communication (BTRC). It will then be finalised by December.

The Secretary added that the finalised guideline would mention a target auction date and that they were preparing to host the bidding in January.

"The ministry is working to finalise the draft of the guideline. We will finish the required preparations for the auction in line with their directives," Acting BTRC Chairman Giasuddin Ahmed told bdnews24.com adding that they would prepare accordingly if the ministry asked them to schedule the auction for January.

The BTRC on Mar 28 submitted the draft guideline, which targeted Sep 3 for the auction of 3G mobile service licences, at the ministry targeting to give five operators the access.

The BTRC draft titled 'Cellular Mobile Phone Service (3G/4G/LTE) Regulatory Licence Guideline 2012' also allowed operators to obtain licence for 3G, 4G and Long Term Evaluation (LTE) services in one go.

The five operators to be given the 15-year access would include three existing private operators, one new operator and Teletalk will be getting the permit as the state-run operator.

Teletalk would be officially launching it 3G services on Oct 14, before the auction is held. However, even though it was not taking part in the auction, the state-run operator would have to pay the price set in the auction, the draft said.

The draft also suggested providing the five operators 10 megahertz frequencies each.

In the draft guidelines, the fee for every megahertz has been proposed at $30 million. It sets the application fee at Tk 0.5 million, licensing fee at Tk 100 million and renewal for every year will cost Tk 50 million, revenue sharing will be 5.5 percent while social obligation fee will be 1 percent.

State-owned Teletalk, along with private operators Grameenphone, Banglalink, Robi, Airtel and Citycell, is offering 2G services now.

The 3G technology will make mobile telephony much more efficient, with high-speed data transfer facilitating users to watch mobile TV, make video calls, using navigation equipment and access many other services.

LTE's data transfer speed is 80 percent higher than 3G. Experts say 4G and LTE are same. Its download speed is 100 megabyte per second and upload speed is 50 Mb/S.

LTE's data pipe is built in such a way that users are able to do work of desktop computers with it.

One new operator, in other words, another indian telco.
What about the contribution of the existing private telco's into the economy/industry over the years ??
Why not let them have a go at it first ??

Will the new operator bid against other new operator ??
Or will they bid against the current ones ??

4g and LTE is not the same.

4G top speed is 1gb/s and not compatible with 3g infrastructure requiring new deployment.

LTE top speed is 100mb/s and backword compatible with 3g network with relatively inexpensive modification of existing infrastructure. Making it cheaper to deploy.

There is no country in the world that has full 4G deployment. They just call LTE, 4G network for marketing purpose.

Every country pulls this sh*t with LTE and calls it 4G.

Yes, the new operator won't be bidding against the existing ones, only with other newer operators.

Between UMTS band I (2110-2170 Mhz) there can be total 6 concessions, Govt. is currently issuing 5. The base price for each 10 Mhz band is $300 Million (That's huge money selling only air :p)

Now, Citicell already uses EVDO which can be termed as a 3G technology, so they won't be bothering about taking part in that auction. And that leaves us with only 4 private GSM telcos - GP, Blink, Robi, Airtel. So, what will be the point of an auction if 4 concessions are to be allowed for 4 participants (teletalk excluded)? That's why the clause of a new operator is inserted. Govt. is eyeing on maximum income from selling this spectrum, so I think when the auction will be over, the other operator left with will have to buy the left out 10 Mhz band in a price set by BTRC after few months/year.

And new operator means new job opportunities, very good thing. (Graduating this 29, need job)

LTE-Advanced is a true 4G technology which some operators are trying to roll out within 2014. Don't think it will be ready anytime soon.

I'm not so tech guy... But at user level yes...

I don't think you are talking complete truth... If lte was compatible with 3G... All UAE mob companies wouldn't say otherwise... They clearly said to wait untill end of sep for them to be ready with 4g for iPhone 5 to be compatible. And even the sellers are warning negatively about the 3G compatibility of iPhone 5...

3G and LTE uses different techniques. Current LTE can be termed as a 3.9G technology. LTE-Advanced (2015) will be the first true 4G technology that will meet all the 4G requirements. LTE and LTE-Advanced use OFDMA modulation technique and offers many advanced features than HSPA/HSPA+. Launching LTE is very CAPEX/OPEX efficient choice, that's why operators are going for it. But there are some problems associated with it, specially still VoLTE (Voice over LTE) isn't ready so to make voice calls LTE users have to fall back to 3G or 2G network.

There is no true 4G implementation currently anywhere in the world. In U.S.A. "4G" is used as a marketing gimmick for many 3G+ services (i.e. T-Mobile) as well as for LTE. In that context, LTE is the fastest implementation of the so-called 4G networks. It won that battle hands down against HSPA+ and Sprint's WiMax about a year ago and all American carriers are either towing the line or looking for a buyer. As someone mentioned above, LTE-Advanced could be termed the first true 4G implementation but since it doesn't practically exist yet there is no true benchmark to compare. Scandinavia and Western Europe will probably get the first crack at it given their more advanced infrastructure compared to U.S.

All this discussion is kind of moot when discussing 2G to 3G implementation. They are very different protocols than LTE (all IP-based) and not anywhere near as expensive - Verizon had to get the entire 700Mhz AM spectrum in U.S. to roll it out, and only now other carriers are catching up. As of now, in U.S. the networks capability is fairly under-utilized. Watching a typical youtube video in DSL (avg 6mbps), LTE (avg. 15 mbps), Xfinity (avg. 18mbps) or FIOS (avg. 25mbps) doesn't give a noticeable difference, especially when mobile apps do a very good job of compression compared to stationary internet pipelines.
