At a time when the telecom industry has witnessed a lot of free data and voice offers, telecom service providers on Thursday suggested to the regulator the idea of creating a floor price for voice and data. “The operators today have discussed the idea of creating a floor price for voice and data services. The rationale behind it was no operator can offer data and voice services below that price,” R S Sharma, Chairman, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), said here while briefing the media after a two-and-a-half hour meeting with seven telecom operators, who discussed the dwindling health of the sector with the regulator.
