For those of us on the outside, India’s telecommunications setup can seem a little murky. While the country has 900 million mobile connections, for example, there hasn’t been a valid 2G license in operation since February. Now, authorities are asking 3G carriers to suspend the practice of allowing customers to switch between different operators as they roam across the country’s 22 wireless regions — with no explanation as to why. Roaming was originally outlawed back in December, but a number of networks appealed — a move which only seems to have postponed the final ruling until today.
