MNP and 3G guidelines released

This post comes after (quite) sometime and the last post was when there was some frenzied activity on 3G spectrum. Well, Indian authorities have released guidelines for 3G and MNP as of last Friday. With this we can safely assume that the rollout of these services would take another year from now.

The government has decided to allow 10 players to grab the 3G spectrum at stake. With the spectrum being limited, these 10 players would have to make do with their smallish allocations to roll out their 3G services to their targeted subscriber base.

MNP may threaten undifferentiated offerings and poor service and service providers may have to evolve strategies around the idea of unsatisified subscribers easily switching providers more easily than before.
