Yes, true it will be surely beneficial for Indian consumers. Also Qualcomm was also having presence via Reliance and TTSL and they had done good for indian consumers interms of providing internet access in the remote areas. Lets hope for the best.

Definitely Qualcomm is not just looking for the income generated by the spectrum but in addition to that it'll try to bring in their proprietary technologies used in the LTE implementation. In anyway this will turn out into a fruitful investment in the near future itself. Also as per the new guidelines by Indian government they are allowing 100% Foreign Direct Investment in some areas.

It will be disastrous for the Indian consumers, if Qualcomm plans to use any of their patented technologies for LTE implementation in India. I guess the government and mobile service providers will oppose this as it will increase the cost of the service and phones. Previously India's Reliance was using only Qualcomm's CDMA technology, and recently they started adding GSM based infrastructure and phones to reduce the license cost given to Qualcomm.

This is very interesting. I wonder if any other technology companies like Qualcomm actually own any part of licenses for broadband spectrum anywhere in the world. Does anyone know? I am curious because I am not exactly sure what Qualcomm's intent is here. Does this mean that Qualcomm plans to add any of its own proprietary elements of technologies to this LTE implementation in India?
