New Delhi: Telenor’s India unit will not participate in the country’s 3G wireless spectrum auction scheduled for April, the company said on Friday.
“We can not participate in these auctions when we haven’t even received the 2G spectrum that we have already paid for,” the company, which operates under the Uninor brand, said in a statement.
The company, which currently operates 2G mobile services in eight of India’s 22 zones and is expanding, said its current focus is on strengthening voice services, which have been the mainstay for telecom firms in India.
“We also believe that there will be other opportunities and routes to get into 3G at a stage when the market is really ready for it and the demand makes for a sound business case,” it said in the statement.
