Intel Looks to Partner Indian Telcos for WiMax
Chipmaker giant Intel Corp is understood to be in talks with leading Indian telecom companies such as Bharti Airtel, Reliance Communications and Tata Communications to jointly bid for radio bandwidth to provide broadband wireless services in the country.
Intel plans to float a new company to partner with one of the three companies to offer services based on worldwide interoperability for WiMax technology in India.
Intel is offering the companies the chance of getting a minority interest in return for venture capital, it is learnt. The chipmaker is likely to adopt a consortium approach to roll out WiMax-based broadband services.
The government has fixed January 14, 2010 for holding the 3G auction. Two days after the close of this auction, a separate bandwidth auction for broadband wireless access is scheduled to be held.
