In an attempt to make the best of the situation, theDoT might just allow more operators to bid for spectrum in the 3G auction. The body has decided that it would accomodate more operators in circles, in which additional capacities exist. These additional spots would help the government to get more money and, on the same hand, make the game more competitive.
Going into specifics, it was expected that the number of operatorswhich could be accomodated would be 2-4. However, it was found some more operators could fit into circles like Kolkata, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra. The new numbers making the rounds are 6-8, which means twice the competition.
