Telecom Watchdog, a consumer forum and an NGO, has now directed the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to stop these satellite operators including Amazon, OneWeb and Starlink from acquiring 4G and 5G spectrum through the backdoor for free and has emphasised the allocation through auction only.

The development comes after Bharti Chairman Sunil Mittal had said that there is no case for auctioning of satellite spectrum.
