NEW DELHI: The Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) has requested the Standing Committee to call all COAI and AUSPI (Association of Unified Telecom Service Providers of India) members and ask them to furnish data on the quality of service QoS and call drops in their individual capacities.


The Standing Committee has called Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd, COAI, and Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) and the Department of Telecommunication (DoT) to appear before the standing committee on November 10 to discuss the QoS and call drops issue.

"We respectfully suggest that in order to assist the Hon’ble Committee in this important exercise, the other members of COAI namely, Airtel, Idea, Vodafone, Aircel and Telenor and the members of AUSPI be also called to depose before the committee and furnish all relevant information and data for the consideration of the Committee," COAI said in its letter to Standing Committee.

"Many of the issues pertaining to the subject are best explained by individual member companies, who are also licensees, as these issues lie within the ambit of bi-lateral commercial agreements between members. Additionally, networks and technologies vary among members and they are best situated to explain some of the nuances involved," it said.

"Hence, we would respectfully request that with the objective of obtaining a full, complete and fair understanding of the matter under discussion, all member companies of COAI and AUSPI be called to present before the Standing Committee on Information Technology," the letter said.
