The smartphone business is nothing without the internet connection. Thus telecom service providers have been bringing as much data services as possible for the handheld devices. While the 4G network has already started being employed by most of the companies across the world, India is still struggling to get a reasonable internet speed on mobile phones.
Realizing the problem in hand, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, also known by an abbreviation TRAI has decided to setup a certain minimum download speeds on mobile Internet. Accordingly, TRAI will make it mandatory for all the telecom service providers in India to deliver minimum download speeds for all the wireless data connections.
However, the office of telecom authority has not come up with a concrete decision pertaining to the fixed rate of internet speed, which the telecom service providers should deliver to its subscribers. Thus, we do not have any information about what speed TRAI is looking for here. But 512 Kbps could possibly be a probable rate. The 3G and CDMA-EVDO service should be able to provide about 1Mbps speed with 95% success rate. On the 2G connections, however - the minimum speed is expected to be about 5.6 Kbps.
