> India's Financial Express newspaper claims that Telstra is planning to re-enter the Indian mobile communications market by bidding for spectrum in the upcoming auction of 3G and broadband wireless access spectrum.
> Citing unnamed sources, it says that Telstra plans to bid for broadband wireless access spectrum rather than 3G spectrum.
> According to the most recent information memorandum on India's Department of Telecommunications Web Site (12 December 2008) the Department will auction 3G spectrum in the 2.1GHz band and broadband wireless access spectrum in the 2.3GHz and 2.5GHz bands. However Telecom Asia this week reported a new DoT information memorandum stating that "The Department of Telecom has decided to auction only 2.3GHz spectrum in the upcoming WiMAX auction, leaving the 2.5GHz band off the table for now."
