Google is looking at Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) / WIMAX in INDIA and is set to participate in the upcoming 3G/WiMAX auction with an Indian partner scheduled on 14th January, 2010. Foreign companies are also allowed to participate in this auction but Non-India companies will need to find Indian partners because foreign companies can buy only up to 74% equity. Google is likely to join with MNTL to bid in the auction. Google shows more interest on Indian 3G which is about to explode as it may have a chance to get into the possibly biggest market of mobile telephony. India is the largest single-country WiMAX opportunity in the world, with most of the major operators actively pursuing WiMAX. Already Google has submitted a proposal to US regulators for clearance to use unused channels, Wi-Fi 2.0 and on which it is possible to offer wireless broadband services at very high speeds. Yet there is an opposition by some people against the inclusion of foreign companies in the auction stating that Indian companies competent for the 3G technology. To know the better result, still we have to wait for two more weeks.
