TRAI has issued a consultation paper on making amendments to ‘The Standards of Quality of Service for Wireless Data Services Regulations, 2012’ to examine the benchmark for minimum download speeds offered through various technologies.
Competition Commission of India urges the ministry of corporate affairs to prevent TRAI from issuing consultation papers on cross-media, cable monopoly and cartelisation by content aggregators; move threatens to jeopardise TRAI’s efforts to frame regulations impacting competition in the broadcast sector.
Set-top box interoperability should be kept out of the new licence guidelines the TRAI is working on, DTH operators say. They point out that technical interoperability is not only difficult to achieve since different DTH operators have deployed different technologies but it is also commercially unviable.
Vertically integrated operators like Tata Sky, Dish TV and Reliance Digital TV have urged TRAI not to impose any cross-media restrictions on DTH companies. They rule out market distortions and feel that interconnection regulations will take care of issues with broadcasters. However, Videocon d2h is in favour of TRAI proposals.
