This is significant as the panel was constituted by the department of telecommunications after the UPA had in January decided there would be differential spectrum usage charge for BWA operators and those who held 2G and 3G spectrum. While those with 2G and 3G spectrum are required to pay SUC at 5% of their revenue, BWA operators need to pay only 1%. Crucial to the implementation of this measure is a mechanism to segregate the revenues so there’s no arbitrage available to those with both bands of spectrum.
Citing the available technical measures the committee has concluded that they are not foolproof and can be tampered by the operators. The only option before the government is to levy hefty fine if a violation is detected so that it acts as a deterrent.
