With Telecom Regulator Authority of India (Trai) taking a stern view of ongoing spat between incumbents and new entrant Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal on Tuesday offered said all issues will be resolved within a few weeks.

”It (points of interconnect) was non-existent (issue). Suddenly this has become unnecessarily a big issue. I have told my team and sent messages to Mukesh (Ambani) and his team. Let’s ignore and resolve this. I am not saying look out for 6 months or a year. Look out for few weeks and this will get settled,” Mittal told ET Now in his first comments on the spat with RelJio.

The sticky point between RelJio and incumbent operators such as Airtel has been providing points of interconnect (PoI), which help calls between different networks to go through.

Jio has accused Airtel and others of creating entry barriers by not providing enough PoI, leading to a large number of call drops on its network.

Trai on Monday said it will take action against telecom operators if found guilty for compromising on quality of service.

Mittal said Jio is being provided sufficient network interconnection points since the time it started commercial service.

”You have to keep in mind September 5 was their commercial launch. 2,000 PoI have been provided and more are being provided. You can’t judge this industry in 10 days. The problem is in the media and in the letter exchanged and all that. Temperature is unnecessarily being taken up. I think you need to lower that down,” he told ET Now.
