TRAI倡议以缓解行业的财务压力:Vaghela,主席

电信监管机构可以很快宣布关于减轻开销和地下电信基础设施所需的方式(行)权限的建议,包括铺设电信纤维和建立建筑解决方案的部署。

TRAI倡议以缓解行业的财务压力:Vaghela,主席新德里:电信监管机构简约可以简单地宣布提出其关于减轻开销和地下电信基础设施所需的权限的建议,包括铺设电信纤维和建立建立解决方案的部署。

即使在建筑物楼宇内,也有助于引入需要特殊的基础设施的5G电信技术。

火车专注于帮助政府准备一个生态系统,以便在印度实施和引入5克,“PD Vaghela印度电信管理局(Trai)主席对《印度时报》表示。

政府被认为正在为5G试验准备蓝图,预计将在今年晚些时候或明年初拍卖5G电波。

据Vaghela称,该监管机构还在研究如何推动“印度电信和广播行业的研发,以及如何促进硬件和软件的标准化和制造”。这需要付出大量努力,并需要建立一个研发生态系统。”

2016年11月,电信部()已经通知了这行政策根据塔和基础设施提供商协会(Taipa)的说法,加快电信基础设施的部署作为“易于做生意”锻炼的一部分,但只有16个州实施了它。

中央指定规则的不执行,导致电信运营商和基础设施提供商不得不大幅增加网络扩展支出。在这种背景下,由于5G的推出需要密集的网络来实现低延迟,预计支出将上升。

电信行业一直在寻求一项统一的基础设施政策,理由是全国各地地方政府或市政机构征收的费用存在异常。在某些情况下,公司支付的费用比规定的1000卢比/公里高1000%。


航空公司一直呼吁政府对RoW采取紧急行动,并指出依赖JIO.Bharti Airtel.沃达丰的想法将统称需要花费超过2.1卢比的卢比(超过300亿美元),为单独推出超快速5G服务的基站和光纤基础设施。

According to Vaghela, one way to work around the problem on RoW is greater sharing of infrastructure–not just passive infrastructure such as fibre, in addition to towers, etc., but also active infrastructure which includes elements of the telecom infrastructure’s radiating layer that includes antennas and base stations. Earlier, telcos led by a Delhi-based group had said the policy on active infrastructure sharing should be liberalised further to allow sharing of core infrastructure.

该官员称,这将有助于电信行业减轻财务压力,并更快地部署基础设施,并补充称,电信公司和通信塔公司将通过共享积极的基础设施节省大量资本支出。

“我们正说正在分享被动基础架构的基础设施提供商也分享活跃的,并且也可以提升纤维化Vaghela说。

据Vaghela,目前基础设施供应商,谁只提供无源基础设施,也可以布置电缆,并进入“fiberisation”,这将有助于加快铺设光纤网络,这是5G部署必不可少的工作。

在印度,大约35%的电信塔网站使用纤维,而在中国,日本和美国这样的国家。

电信监管机构已经向国家电信管理局提交了积极共享基础设施的建议电信部门,旨在提高企业的范围。

    什么在2019年去了?

    2016 was an indelible year for the telecom industry as it marked Mukesh Ambani led Jio’s foray into the sector which led to industry revenue getting caught in a downward spiral as old players’(Vodafone, Idea, Bharti Airtel) saw their profits and subscriber bases dwindling rapidly. The erstwhile flourished industry narrowed to a handful of players with 2019 opening up new challenging frontiers for the sector. It kept surfacing up in headlines owing to several significant developments, let’s dive into what kept India’s telecom sector abuzz throughout 2019.

    AGR打击:行业陷入疯狂

    2019年的亮点是最高法院对大约15年来电信运营商和DOT在僵局中的长期抵抗争议的判决。最后,10月顶点法院授权的电信公司支付累计满15年的跨度,在此期间,因为它坚持DOT的需求,运营商纳入其调整后总收入的非电信业务收入的事项已伸展他们overdues;其中的一部分,然后由电信公司支付给政府的牌照费和频谱使用费。DOT在包括刑罚的主要,罚款和利息包括校长,罚款和利息的总金额,致力于巨大的1.4万亿卢比,其中约有89,000亿卢比,由Bharti Airtel和沃达丰的想法单独制造最糟糕的患者。

    沃达丰(Vodafone Idea)和Airtel的历史性亏损之后,频谱费用的暂停缓解

    在爆发的愤怒中,两家公司在截至9月的季度共亏损超过7400亿卢比,沃达丰Idea的份额为5.1亿卢比,这是印度企业有史以来最大的亏损。随后,印度最高法院收到了一系列请愿书,请求以某种形式得到救济,Birla集团和沃达丰(Vodafone Plc)的掌门人否认帮助这两家电信巨头摆脱困境。去年11月,该中心将2019-20财年和20-21财年的频谱费用推迟两年,以缓解电信公司眼下的现金危机,此举被视为缓解担忧的措施。但行业的救济需求并没有消失,因为专家认为,随着1月23日支付AGR会费的最后期限越来越近,SC在1月16日驳回了电信公司的救济请求,这一措施是不合适的。

    围绕无关税制度的部门结束了免费赠品的时代

    AGR的冲击让位于一项前所未有的发展。随着电信运营商三年来首次上调捆绑预付费费率,电信业的话语发生逆转,这实际上回到了jio之前的时代。为了承受AGR相关费用带来的严重财务打击,Bharti Airtel、Vodafone Idea和Jio寻求从12月起修订关税,将税率提高25-50%。行业专家和绿色组织表示,此举是朝着改善行业运营指标迈出的积极一步,可能有助于电信公司缩小资产负债表上的差距。

    关税徒步地点燃恢复?

    CRISIL said that the revised tariffs will improve the industry’s average revenue per user (ARPU)--a key performance unit that has been in slump for the last seven quarters-- by about 25% to Rs 145 next fiscal from around Rs 116 in 2019. The impact of these remedial measures, however will unfold only in quarterly results ending March 2020, prior to which, January 23 deadline for AGR dues still continues to loom over with no relief in sight. While the experts have opined, 2020 could also see a potential fall in mobile user base as many users seek SIM consolidation and opt for a single mobile connection owing to higher tariffs and costlier minimum recharge plans.

    政府向BSNL-MTNL提供生命线

    The national carrier- BSNL that has traditionally been hailed as a strategic asset for the country finally got government’s nod on a revival plan set out to save the PSU that has been ringing losses since 2010. In October, the centre approved a Rs 70,000 crore revival plan devising BSNL and MTNL to be merged along with other significant measures like allocation of 4G airwaves, asset monetisation worth Rs 38,000 crore, Rs 15,000 crore worth of sovereign bonds and voluntary retirement scheme for the combined 2 lakh employees that will save about Rs 8,800 crore in wage bills for the two state majors.

    但是,复兴包装本身似乎不足以缓解在实施前面产生的问题。在拟议的融合实体的运营口径上削减劳动力的影响问题周围的问题,在潜在的竞标者中,用于货币化进程,在其他人之间获得批准的潜在官僚延误仍然继续回应清楚。Further, as recently reported by ETT, the centre’s rural mobile connectivity initiatives of about Rs 20,956.23 crore, like BharatNet, Left-Wing Extremism II-- among several others are now being considered for open bidding that would allow private players to also bid, which could lead to BSNL being sidelined.

    5G道路:拍卖推迟,政府认可华为的参与

    商业滚动从印度的雄心勃勃的5G技术中一直在悬挂在几年里,现在延迟看似伸展2020年。虽然该行业与政府发生冲突,但在3.3-3.6 GHz频段的频谱中竞争的高度定价和稀释的可用性,但由于AGR已有效地使运营商能够在本财政区内无法招标。

    尽管Airtel,Vodafone Idea,Jio和BSNL提交了在1月15日用DOT进行现场试验的申请,但行业专家仍然看到2022年的5G,因为电信公司的平衡表严重伤害缺乏货币净额来竞标最终拍卖。

    相比之下,新年前两天,12月30日,政府允许中国球员华为(阅读所有供应商)与电信玩家合作开展实地试验。在印度在华为的沉默中,在华为参与5G部署的沉默之后,搬家是在美国迫使印度向华为部署网络。然而,印度终于在这一问题上举行了一个职位,因为它是与其两个主要贸易伙伴 - 中国和美国的战略平衡保持战略平衡。

    2020年援助要求作为AGR付款到期日的方法

    SC于1月16日在1月16日被驳回的Airtel,沃达丰想法和Tata Teleservices的恳求,他们在11月份提交回来,要求法院审查其10月Agr裁决。Airtel和Vil表示,他们可能会在截止日期到期日期为1月23日提交疗法申请。分析师认为,拒绝向运营商扩展到运营商的任何帮助可能导致两位玩家行业。vil留在懒奇里可能会看到退出行业,因为KM Birla先前已经说过。

    关税修订被认为将该部门带到恢复,然而,在究竟在究竟将于1月23日缴纳耕国赔偿金额的截止日期,这令人清晰地阐明。

    此外,在2月1日欧盟预算到来之前,据报道,受到多种税收和税收拖累的行业已经向政府寻求援助,以降低监管税、税收和许可证费用的形式,以更低的利率获得信贷。此外,还要求从许可证费用和频谱使用费中取消商品及服务税。

The highlight of 2019 was Supreme Court\u2019s judgement on the long standing dispute of computing AGR that had the telecom operators and DoT in a deadlock for over 15 years. Finally, the apex court in October mandated telecom companies to pay their overdues accumulated over the 15 year span during which the matter had stretched as it upheld DoT\u2019s demand that operators include non-telecom service revenues in their adjusted gross revenue; a part of which is then paid by the telcos to the government in license fees and spectrum usage charges. The total amount that DoT asserted as due including the principal, penalty and interest on penalty worked out to be a massive Rs 1.4 lakh crore with about Rs 89,000 crore due from Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea alone making them the worst sufferers.<\/p>","seolocation":"indias-telecom-sector-in-a-rewind-everything-from-agr-bsnl-revival-5g-iuc-to-tariff-hikes-in-2019\/agr-blow-industry-caught-in-a-frenzy","seolocationalt":"indias-telecom-sector-in-a-rewind-everything-from-agr-bsnl-revival-5g-iuc-to-tariff-hikes-in-2019\/agr-blow-industry-caught-in-a-frenzy","mediaType":"1"},"_73274005":{"msid":"73274005","secsname":"Historic losses for Vodafone Idea and Airtel followed by spectrum charges' moratorium relief","ssname":"Historic losses for Vodafone Idea and Airtel followed by spectrum charges' moratorium relief","artdate":1579090238,"artag":"","overridelink":"","windowtype":"","caption":"

Amidst the furore that erupted, the two incumbents recorded combined losses of over Rs 74,000 crore in the quarter ending September, with Vodafone Idea\u2019s share being Rs 51,000 cr--the highest ever loss for a corporate in the country. What followed was a round of petitions filed in the Supreme court praying for relief in some form amidst the head honchos of Birla group and Vodafone Plc denying any help to take the two telecom giants out of the plunge.

Another major closure got delivered on the interconnect usage charge issue with Trai deferring the implementation of the zero-IUC regime by a year that was slated to kick off starting January 2020, on account of \u201cinadequate adoption of 4G technologies by consumers and asymmetries in traffic\". IUC --a charge that a call-originating telco pays to the destination operator on whose network the call terminates--is pegged at Rs 6 paisa\/min.<\/p>

The regulator in 2017 had proposed to kickstart BAK (bill and keep) system from January 2020 where the call generating telco as proposed would keep the amount instead of paying it. The deferment has been welcomed by older carriers Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel as they are net interconnect revenue earners given most Jio calls end on their networks which makes the latter a net payer. By putting off the immediate January 2020 date set for scrapping the regime, by a year, Trai, for now has enabled the two saddled operators to continue earning some streams of cash flows.<\/p>","seolocation":"indias-telecom-sector-in-a-rewind-everything-from-agr-bsnl-revival-5g-iuc-to-tariff-hikes-in-2019\/respite-for-old-telcos-with-iuc-scrappage-deferred-by-a-year","seolocationalt":"indias-telecom-sector-in-a-rewind-everything-from-agr-bsnl-revival-5g-iuc-to-tariff-hikes-in-2019\/respite-for-old-telcos-with-iuc-scrappage-deferred-by-a-year","mediaType":"21"},"_73273781":{"msid":"73273781","secsname":"Government throws lifeline to BSNL-MTNL","ssname":"Government throws lifeline to BSNL-MTNL","artdate":1579090238,"artag":"","overridelink":"","windowtype":"","caption":"

Commercial roll out of the ambitious 5G technology in India has been in a hang for years now with the delay seemingly stretching over and beyond 2020 as well. While the industry has been in conflict with the government over what it contends as high pricing and scanty availability of the spectrum in the 3.3-3.6 GHz bands, the financial knockout on account of AGR has effectively made the operators incapable of bidding within this fiscal. <\/p>

Even though Airtel, Vodafone Idea, Jio and BSNL submitted applications to conduct field trials with DoT on January 15, industry experts still see 5G coming to India by 2022 since telcos having their balance sheets badly bruised lack monetary headroom to bid for the final auctions. <\/p>

In contrast, just two days before the new year, on December 30, the government allowed Chinese player Huawei (read all vendors) to conduct field trials in partnership with the telecom players.
