India Will Soon Have Better Quality Mobile Internet
The Telecom Authority of India (TRAI) has released a draft regulation on mobile data services which looks at improving the standard of mobile data services provided by telcos.
The Telecom Authority of India (TRAI) has released the latest draft regulations on mobile data services, which aims at improving the quality and standard of service provided by telcos. This decision comes as an after effect of increased activation of 3G services on most networks and rolling out of 4G by Airtel.
The draft regulations include nine benchmarks for quality like service activation within 3 hours with a 95% success rate, networks inability to download or upload should be less than 2% and service provider must measure and share minimum download speed with TRAI. You can read the entire draft here.
Telcos are supposed to maintain compliance records of each of the nine parameters and submit them to Trai within 60 days of notification of these new rules.
TRAI has sought written comments from stakeholders by July 25 and counter comments by Aug 1 and there is currently no such quality benchmark in India.
