MTNL inviting bids for WiMAX rollout

MTNL has announced that it will soon invite bids from private players for deployment of WiMAX services in Delhi and Mumbai.

MTNL plans to allow one successful bidder each in its licensed area of Delhi and Mumbai for deployment and operation of their WiMax system conforming to IEEE 802.16e standard, on an exclusive, revenue sharing basis.

State owned MTNL and BSNL were allotted spectrum long ago for BWA roll-out but failed to utilise the opportunity of being the first-mover. MTNL now faces competition from Qualcomm and Infotel, both of whom have expressed interest in using TD-LTE for roll-out.
