TRAI plans to bring rules on minimum wireless speed

Soon, consumers will have clarity and assurance on the minimum download speed they would get from their telecom operator, be it 2G or 3G services, as telecom regulator TRAI is gearing up to mandate mobile services companies to ensure details in this regard under quality of service rules.
“The authority (TRAI) has been receiving a number of complaints from consumers regarding the poor download speed experienced by them.” Consumers are being wooed by telecom companies in advertisements regarding high speed wireless data services and product packs in which they are promised speeds of up to 7.2 megabit a second or 21 megabit a second. In general, even at 7.1 mbps speed, a mobile or dongle user should be able to download a full-length movie in around 12-14 minutes.
Telecom operators have reported to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India that the minimum download speed delivered on their most high speed 3G service is in the range of 399 kbps (less than minimum broadband speed of 512 kbps) to 2.48 mbps.
