Telecom companies seek extension of spectrum holdings


CEOs of the country’s top mobile operators — Bharti Airtel, Vodafone, Idea Cellular and Reliance Communications — have appealed to the government for extension of spectrum holdings for licenses expiring in 2015-16 and sought a “big bang” auction of airwaves to tide over network problems.

In a letter written to telecom minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, a copy of which has also been marked to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, they said the measures are necessary to address the issue of spectrum shortage and also boost investor confidence.
