Airtel, Vodafone want higher fee to handle Jio’s call ‘tsunami’

India’s top telecom firms have asked for a higher-than-prescribed fee to handle Reliance Jio’s voice call ‘tsunami’. At a meeting called by the regulator Trai, incumbent operators assured Jio of providing “reasonable incremental” number of interconnection points but voiced concern over what they viewed as an uncharacteristically high traffic flow from the new entrant’s network due to its offer of free voice calling.
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) has told the two parties to resolve the contentious interconnect matter among themselves, but warned that it would act if quality of service drops and consumers suffer. Jio has alleged that crores of calls from its network are not getting connected on other networks, accusing rivals of violating telecom licence conditions by failing to provide adequate connections.
