BWA Auction, Pan-India Price On Day 14 Is 7x Base Price, 73.1% 3G Price

The average price increase per round on Day 14 of India’s Broadband Wireless Access Auction went up for the third day in a row to Rs. 92.43 crore per round, higher than the Rs. 86.58 crore per round reported on the previous day. At the end of the 8 rounds held on the day, the pan-India spectrum price was Rs. 12257.30 crore, up 6.42% from day 13.

The pan-India spectrum price is now 7 times the base price of Rs. 1750 crore, around Rs. 10507.30 crore higher. The average price increase per round, over the 110 rounds so far, is Rs. 95.52 crore. The Indian government stands to make at least Rs. 36771.90 crore from the BWA auction – Rs. 24,514.60 crore from the private telecom operators, Rs. 8003.33 crore from BSNL, and Rs. 4253.97 crore from MTNL.

So the price for BWA spectrum in Delhi and Mumbai is now higher than the Rs. 4000 crore MTNL was looking to raise to pay for it.
