Chiding private telecom operators for repeated call drops on their network, Union minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Saturday said lack of spectrum is no excuse for not resolving this problem.
“When people come with complaint about call drop on private mobile operators network what should I tell them? Private telecom operators need to ponder on this call drop. All this is because lack of spectrum, I’m sorry. I don’t buy this,” he said at a telecom event organised by television channel NewsX.
Telephone subscribers have been complaining about frequent call drops. Operators have cited lack of spectrum and residents protesting installation of mobile towers as reasons for call drops.
