Fast Downloads-Not a Dream Anymore

 In India 76% of the internet users access internet from mobile sources.Its a fast growing world and mobile phones powered by next generation processors and state of the art operating systems like android make internet surfing a bliss.But lets face it many times you have thought of throwing your smartphone out of the window beacuse of the crawling download speed but its not your smartphone's fault because it's the 'OPERATOR'! 2G or 3G people are still facing the slow bandwith and crawling downloads and beacuse of this finally TRAI has taken the initiative to listen to our grievances and do some changes.

Basically in India there are two basic connections for mobile internet the old 2G and the famed 3G.Now to get a better understanding of what it is just scroll down.

What is 2G?

Second Generation (2G) wireless cellular mobile services was a step ahead of First Generation( 1G) services by providing the facility of short message service(SMS) unlike 1Gthat had its prime focus on verbal communication.
However after much ado 3G was introduced to cover up the back lag of 2G.

The 3G Era

In this 3G Wide Brand Wireless Network is used with which the clarity increases and gives the perfection as like that of a real conversation. The data is sent through the technology called Packet Switching .Voice calls are interpreted through Circuit Switching.
It is a highly sophisticated form of communication that has come up in the last decade.In addition to verbal communication it includes data services, access to television/video, categorizing it into triple play service.High speed internet service, video chatting are the assets of 3G.

Now coming back to the legislation which TRAI wants to pass.It would mean a significant increse in the current upload and download speed.The traditional speeds which are offered to the 2G users ranges between 35-96kbps but with this legislation the download speed is expected to be fixed at a minimum of 1mbps ie. 1 megabyte per second.

For those of you who don't know what TRAI stands for,well,it stands for 'Telecom Regulatory Authority Of India'.TRAI has sought public views on its consultation by May 5 and counter comments by May 12.The decision is expected to be put in action by the end of this year.
