TRAI gives green light for free roaming

Free roaming was one of the major highlights of the draft national telecom policy 2011. If implemented, mobile phones users will not be required to pay extra on roaming.
TRAI has now given green signal to DoT for going ahead with this proposal.
The NTP 2011 is likely to be finalised by April this year.
The draft NTP 2011 features "Right to Broadband” plan that proposes increasing the broadband downloading speed up to 2Mbps by 2020, increasing tele-density up to 60 percent by 2017 and 100 per cent 2020, availability of 300MHz spectrum by 2017 and another 200 MHz of spectrum by 2020, delinking spectrum license and provision of radio-waves at market price.
