3G video calls rollout won't be impacted by security issue !!

New Delhi: Rollout of the much-awaited 3G services is unlikely to be affected by the security issue surrounding interception of video calling, research firm KPMG said.

"3G rollout plans have already been finalised by most operators. There are bigger challenges in terms of rolling out the services in a cost-effective manner and no operator has got a pan-India licence," KPMG Executive Director Jaideep Ghosh told reporters.

So, the rollout of 3G services from the operator's side is not going to change much because of this particular issue, he added.

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) had asked telecom operators Tata Teleservices and RCom to stop video calling services till they adhered to security norms for its legal interception.

Asked if telecom players would put on hold rolling out 3G services on the back of the government orders, Ghosh said, "Operators have paid huge amounts to get the licences and they would like to roll out services soon. I don't think operators would like to wait for six months or a year. Services would go on, only video calls have been put on hold."
