“The recommended licensing framework impacts issues of the spectrum, terminal sizes, entry fee, license fee, bank guarantee, NOCC charges, spectrum usage charges, royalty fee, etc. It will promote technology-neutral solutions promoting optimisation and growth of the industry”, said Prakash.
The sector regulator’s move has also been welcomed by the Broadband India Forum (BIF), an industry body representing the likes of Google, Facebook, Cisco, Hughes, Intel, among others that said providing satellite-based low-bit rate connectivity for low bitrate applications will drive mass adoption of satcom in the country.
