Mobility twins meet regulator to clear the air

New Delhi, May 2: Spooked by the telecom regulatorís move to seek clarifications on certain wireless in local loop (WiLL) tariffs, Reliance Infocomm and Tata Teleservices approached the Trai office to furnish the required information.

Senior officials of Reliance met the officials of the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India to discuss the tariff issue and furnish the required information.

Reliance sources said discussions were continuing and expressed the hope that the problems would be resolved soon.

The discussions would continue tomorrow, they pointed out but did not divulge the details.

Another WiLL operator Tata Teleservices, from whom Trai has sought clarifications, said it was closely examining the issues and the clarification required, and was in talks with Trai to sort out the matter.

Tatas said they had received a letter from Trai late in the evening yesterday, asking for clarifications pertaining to its proposal to allow customers to make STD calls within the allocated free minutes in its various CDMA mobile tariff plans.

The telecom regulator had sought clarification from various operators on WiLL and cellular tariffs. The regulator is benchmarking the tariff proposals against principles such as non-discrimination, non-predatory and interconnect usage charges (IUC) compliance.
