> how do these circle roaming tariffs impact the end user? or is it just at the provider level?

Till sometime back there were inter-state long distance charges, inter-state roaming charges  and inter-operator inter-connects. That was also due to the fact that there were different telecoms operative in different circles.

Re: India Spectrum War chest weak without global players
@nasimson....During Dot Com 1.0...the likes of Nynex, Bell canada, bell Atlantic, US West,AT&T,Enron, Global X-ings did evinced interest in the Indian telecom market.....then there was big "burst".....and the whole world gone topsy-turvy....till 2008.....

Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India, Idea Cellular, Reliance did tried to salvage the situation...but without the deep-pocketed global players global practices,mobile data growth trends implementation....Indian telco will still remain a voice centric market with ARPUs in the range of $5-10....To give further impetus to the mobile-date growth and to cross-subsidize the 'Ivy League" of smartphones....iOS,Android etc. India need badly the entry of the global telcos at the earliest.....Maximum growth will happen in the next 5 years only....

Re: India Spectrum War chest weak without global players
@Umesh: You make an intersting point. Some how nonUS global operators like Singtel,QTel, Etisalat, Duetsche Telecom, British Telecom have also not shared significant explicit plans for Indian market. Telenor got ridiculed when it said it would enter Indian market. Telenor went through some upheavels, but doing ok now. I wonder why global telecoms are reluctant?

India Spectrum War chest weak without global players
Taking a cue from US FCC AWS Spectrum auction ended earlier this month,we really wonder why the likes of Verizon,AT&T,T-Mobile, Sprint, Dishnet etc. do not perceive India as the next stop.....post 1995 auctions...except the MTS,Telenor etc. none of the tier-1 telcos of the world....be it Orange,Telefonica, DT, TeliaSonera,MTN, have invested in the surging economy like India.....currently 1Bn Mobile subscriptions....and approx 200Mn Broadband subscribers....

It is high time, the global players has to be serious about Indian telco market and stay invested there....rather than just buying the spectrum and monetizing and exiting in a jiffy....AT&T, Verizon Wireless....Are you listening??

Further complicate
Indian telecom space is very complex due to many circles and circle-wide licences, circle-wide auctions and inter-circle roaming tariffs. These upcoming auctions can further complicate the industry dynamics if some operators loose spectrum rights in their circles.

Re: Fun stuff
No doubt that Vondafone will have the resources to build out better wireless infrastructor. With the population density in India there is no question that a reliable and robust network will be needed to support demand.

Re: Fun stuff
It really is a nice time for indian telecom. I think MTS understands that they would have to have enough market coverage to be bidding for a high spectrum to deply 4G. However I personally want Vodafone to win this bidding because they would have the proper resources to follow up with the acquiring of the bandwidth.
