According to the information, a consultation paper can be issued for consultation with all stakeholders related to the telecom sector in one to two months. After the release of the consultation paper, there will also be a meeting with all the stakeholders and after extensive discussion, the guidelines will be sent to the government for approval.
At present, only telecom companies are allowed to share things like towers and BTS. Sources also said that the decision to share the active network infrastructure will save telecom companies around 30%.
According to the official associated with the case, TRAI has always been in favor of sharing network and infrastructure. This will not only save the expenses of the companies, but the infrastructure can also be put to better use. Due to the changing circumstances in the current era, it is also possible for companies working on the same software and technology to share other’s infrastructure.
In the opinion of experts, this arrangement can be very useful to prevent disruptions in services due to limited infrastructure in the coming days due to increasing internet usage and new connections. Also, during the 5G rollout, network sharing remains a sustainable option for companies not to spend too much on their expenses.
