A rickshaw puller speaks on his mobile phone as he waits for customers in front of advertisement billboards belonging to telecom companies in Kolkata February 3, 2014. India is auctioning airwaves in both the 1800 megahertz and 900 megahertz bands, and Reliance Industries, a formidable rival to market leaders Bharti Airtel Ltd and Vodafone Group PLC, has unexpectedly opted to compete for both, sources have said. Spectrum in the 1800 Mhz range would enable Reliance to offer voice services and improved coverage for its 4G Internet service and bidding for the spectrum is expected to be relatively modest given that there is plenty of it and it is less efficient than the 900 Mhz bandwidth.
