India offers tax concessions to Apple to expand production - official
NEW DELHI India has offered to allow Apple Inc to import mobile handset components intended for use in local manufacturing tax free, a top government official said on Tuesday.
SINGAPORE Singapore's telecommunications regulator said a unit of Australia's TPG Telecom made the winning bid of S$105 million ($73.7 million) in an airwaves auction that would make it the city-state's fourth telecoms operator.
TPG's unit will be provisionally allocated 60 MHz of spectrum made available in the new entrant spectrum auction, the Info-communications Media Development Authority said in a statement.
Singapore currently has three telecommunications network operators - Singapore Telecommunications Ltd, M1 Ltd and StarHub Ltd - and the government has been seeking to increase competition.
The city-state will hold a second phase of the airwaves auction open to the existing players and TPG's unit in the first quarter of 2017, the IMDA said.
