Airtel chief predicts rising mobile tariffs, if spectrum is charged
| by Naina Khedekar |
TRAI's decision about one-time fee for additional spectrum consumed by operators has been making rounds for quite some time now. Older operators who have acquired the extra spectrum aren’t in favour of the one-time fee charge for the additional spectrum. Now, Sunil Mittal, Chairman of Bharti Airtel says that if operators will have to pay for the spectrum then mobile tariffs will see a rise. So, eventually Indian mobile phone users will be paying more.

"We have been offering services with lower tariffs when we have not been charged for spectrum. Going ahead, if it (spectrum) will be charged, we will also have to charge the customer," Sunil Mittal said.
