EU telecom ministers aim to end bandwidth favoritism

EU ministers urged the European Commission and regulators to check on telecom operators who prioritize bandwidth for certain services,

giving leverage to complaints about mobile firms around the world blocking Web-call services such as Skype.

Ministers urged the pan-European regulator and the European Commission to monitor mobile companies' traffic management to ensure that they

do not hamper "net neutrality", meaning that all services are treated equally.

The regulator, BEREC, says infringements of "net neutrality", in which some Internet traffic like voice calls is blocked in favor of other

data, are infrequent, but ministers are concerned that some services are being throttled.

BEREC will publish a joint report from regulators in the 27 EU member states in February on whether telecom firms respect the principle of

net neutrality.

Microsoft's Skype service says it is either blocked or overpriced by mobile operators, who see its low-cost service as a threat to their

business. Skype's customer base is forecast to reach 150 million by 2016, according to Juniper Research.

A report by the voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP)association, VON Europe, says Vodafone Group Plc restricts access to Web-based calls on

pay-as-you-go deals, while some mobile providers do not allow VoIP at all, including France Telecom's Orange, Bouygues, Germany's E-Plus

and its parent group, Dutch provider KPN.

The Netherlands passed a law on October 3 banning mobile firms from charging customers extra for Web-based call services.
India may auction surrendered BSNL broadband spectrum

India has "in principle" accepted a proposal from state-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd to surrender wireless broadband spectrum in several

telecoms zones and will look at auctioning it to other players, the telecoms secretary said.

If the proposal is approved, BSNL's fourth-generation wireless broadband spectrum could be made available to the highest bidder in India's

ferociously competitive telecoms sector. The firm has spectrum in 20 of the country's 22 telecoms zones.

"That proposal was considered and in principle this is something which is considered as acceptable provided the details are worked out," R.

Chandrashekhar told reporters, adding that the firm proposed giving up spectrum in a "substantial number" of zones.

BSNL spent 83.14 billion rupees ($1.62 billion) last year on broadband spectrum after it was forced to match the highest bidder in a state

-run auction that attracted much higher bids than expected.

The firm has told the government the price it paid for the spectrum in many of the telecoms zones is "not becoming a viable case" for it,

Chandrashekhar said.

"The specifics will still have to be worked out," he said, when asked if BSNL would get a refund of the money it had paid.

BSNL, once India's top telecoms carrier, has lost market share to private operators in Asia's third-largest economy, and now ranks fifth by

mobile subscribers and has made losses in the past two fiscal years.

Two slots of broadband spectrum in each of India's 22 zones were sold in the auction. State-run telecoms firms who were given an extra slot

matched the highest bid price.

Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd, India's other state-run carrier, was given spectrum in the two zones where BSNL is not present.

Reliance Industries, India's biggest listed company, bought the only firm to have won broadband spectrum in all 22 telecom zones. U.S.

chipmaker Qualcomm, Indian mobile market leader Bharti Airtel are among firms that won broadband spectrum in some of the zones.

None of the spectrum winners have launched fourth-generation broadband services yet, with most of them looking at building fourth-

generation (4G) networks based on the long-term evolution (LTE) technology. ($1 = 51.4125 Indian rupees)
