The Telecom Policy and Regulatory Environment survey results have been carried in the Economic Times in India.

India’s regulatory regime has been found to be the best for mobile phone tariffs but the 2G spectrum allocation controversy has pulled it down in a recent perception survey of seven nations conducted by telecom regulation and policy study firm Lirneasia.

“In India, the regulator does not regulate most of the prices where as in other countries, we surveyed, there are regulatory interventions,” Payal Malik, senior research fellow of Lirneasia told PTI.

India scored 3.9 for mobile phone tariffs on scale of 1 to 5. This was followed by Pakistan with score of 3.3 on the same scale.

Understandably, the Pakistan Daily Times highlighted Pakistan’s good performance.
