The DoT is seeking the release of allocated spectrum for use in WiMAX networks. The spectra in question are currently being used by the Department of Space for satellite comunications.

"Some spectrum on 2.3-2.5 Ghz band have been made available to the operators going for Wimax roll-out. We have to coordinate with department of space for releasing spectrum 3.3-3.8 Ghz as well as 2.5-2.7 Ghz band so that we can give it to Wimax operators. But it will take time," DoT sources said.
