Vodafone's (VOD) Indian unit, which has already clashed with local authorities over tax issues, is opposing a government plan to charge a fee (determined by auction) to use spectrum in the the 1800 MHz. band (currently used for 2G services) to offer 3G and 4G services. Vodafone argues its original license for the airwaves covers the right to offer more advanced services.
