Fuelling the telco 4G firestorm

Telstra and Optus’ push to gain early accesss to the 700Mhz spectrum before the scheduled release date of 2015 has received a boost of sorts but will the goverment play ball?

Telstra and Optus’ push to gain early access to the 700Mhz spectrum before the scheduled release date of 2015 has received a boost of sorts from the latest research by the global cellular industry organisation, the GSMA, and Boston Consulting Group. However, the government is unlikely to change the Gillard government's game plan any time soon.

Both telcos are looking to gain early access to the spectrum to beef up their 4G networks and the latest report from GSMA and The Boston Consulting Group says that early allocation the spectrum could deliver substantial socio-economic benefits.
