CDMA lobby group Auspi (Association of Unified Telecom Service Providers of India) is likely to shut down soon, according to industry sources.
However, Ashok Sud, Secretary-General of (AUSPI), could not be reached out for this story.
“CDMA technology will cease to exist within a year. However, more than the timelines, the reasons behind its closure are important,” Sud was quoted as saying to a publication earlier.
Reliance Communication, Tata Teleservices are some of the existing CDMA players.
CDMA users in the country stood at 12.59 million as on March 31, 2017, a drastic fall from its peak of 114 million in June 2011, the publication said.
