TRAI soon fixes the “minimum download speed” for mobile Internet
The telecom regulator has been receiving a number of complaints from consumers regarding poor download speed for mobile internet being experienced by them.
Mobile and telephone users will have clarity and assurance on the minimum download speed they would get from their telecom operator, be it 2G or 3G services. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India is gearing up to mandate mobile services companies to ensure details in this regard under quality of service rules.
TRAI said -
“The telecom consumers availing wireless data services are not aware of the minimum download speed being offered to them by the TSPs. Generally, the tariff plans offered by the TSPs are based on the volume of data usage for various technologies, without any clarity about the speed being offered to consumers. Also, there is no commitment of minimum download speed while offering a tariff plan.”
