Note : The document says The Auction results are provisional and subject to approval by the Government but its unlikely that we might see any major changes !

And State Owned providers BSNL and MTNL are missing from that list because they are already offering 3G service. They are expected to pay a fee matching the highest bid to continue offering the services.
