The Trai on Wednesday said it would act fast on requests by operators or the government on the issue of inter-connection. This comes at a time when Reliance Jio and incumbent operators are engaged in a war of letters on the issue of providing interconnection to the telecom venture of Reliance Industries.

“We will take fast decisions. If there is a letter which has come from the telecom department or the industry or any agency, we will certainly respond to it,” Trai chairman RS Sharma told reporters when asked about Reliance Jio’s letter to him on the issue on Tuesday.

Sharma, however, did not confirm or deny receiving any communication.

The sectoral regulator’s comments come a day after Reliance Jio Infocomm wrote to Trai.
