3G auction skewed in favor of CDMA

Two professors from MDI, Gurgaon assert that the rules behind the 3G auction do not foster fair competition between CDMA and GSM technologies. The last I heard, the 3G spectrum will be auctioned off some time at the end of 2007 or early 2008.

The ramifications for the end-consumer are deep. Due to the lack of competition, operators won’t be incentivized to market innovative pricing schemes in favor of growth over price-hoarding.
