India was previously scheduled to auction off licenses to its 3G spectrum on January 15th, 2009. However, that date has been pushed back to January 30th, in order to “give potential bidders more time to study bid documents and rules for the auction,” according to a government agency.
India’s Ministry of Communications took care of moving the final date for applications to bid from January 5th to January 15th, due to requests of potential bidders.
Shortly after the close of the 3G spectrum auction in India, two days later to be exact, an auction of spectrum for broadband wireless is scheduled to be held. However, the auction for the 3G spectrum licenses is still considered to be the one that will be hotly contested.
