DoT to own an independent satellite


Department of telecommunications (DoT) of india has decided to own an independent telecom satellite.

Sources said that officials have deliberated the proposal at length and now modalities need to be formulated. At present, the department of space and any telecom operator owns all satellites or broadcaster requiring the same have to apply with it.

However, it was felt that DoT being a communications department having to do a lot with satellites should own one on its own.

The move will primarily help telecom operators who are fast getting into DTH operations.

In fact, the country’s largest and second largest mobile operators, Bharti Airtel and Reliance Communications have firmed up their DTH ventures and their operations could have started faster had satellites been free for their usage. Even VSAT operators will benefit immensely once DoT has its own satellite.
