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.
