    Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has now decided to move the Supreme Court against 3G intra-circle roaming (ICR) agreement between operators.

    DoT had earlier banned 3G intra-circle roaming, saying they enabled the companies to offer 3G services without buying spectrum.

    In 2010 Indian government auctioned spectrum on 2100MHz band for launching GSM-3G services. The auction was too fierce that not a single company could not get pan India 3G coverage. Soon Airtel, Vodafone and Idea entered into an agreement to offer 3G services even in those circles where they don’t have spectrum.
    Now if DOT manages to STOP 3G services via ICRA it means big trouble for operators and end users.
