The Department of Telecom has said that it will meet telecom operators once again this quarter for a status check on call drops, which it says, has improved but still not satisfactory.

Commenting on the development, Telecom Secretary, JS Deepak told the media, "The call drop situation has shown improvement with additional spectrum availability, and the private sector making more investments in technology and towers... but it is not satisfactory because call drops are happening."

As per reports, DoT had held discussions with telecom operators last year on the consumer-centric issue of call drops and quality of service. Following this, telecom operators installed more than 1,30,000 additional Base Transceiver Stations or BTSs (mobile towers) across the country during June-October 2016 period and further committed to install more than 1,50,000 additional BTSs across the country by March 2017.
