- The government has increased the minimum broadband speed in India.
- Users will now get minimum speed of 2 Mbps instead of 512 kbps.
- The rule has been implemented with immediate effect.
If you are also a broadband internet user, then this news will make you happy. In fact, some time ago the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India i.e. TRAI also urged the Government of India to increase the minimum broadband speed. At the same time, considering the suggestion of TRAI, now the minimum broadband speed in India has been increased by the Central Government. Now users will get at least 2 Mbps speed. At the same time, earlier users used to get at least 512 Kbps speed.
Minimum speed increased by 4 times
Telecom providers will have to change the minimum speed from 512 kbps to 2 Mbps with immediate effect. In such a situation, it has become mandatory for every telecom operator to provide at least 2 Mbps speed to its customers on their broadband connection.
Explain that the Government of India wants to become a fast growing digital economy. In such a situation, there should be a fixed internet speed limit for daily functioning. TRAI also suggested to the government to increase the minimum broadband speed from 512 Kbps to 2 Mbps.
In India’s telecom sector, apart from Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea, broadband service is also being provided by the government telecom operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL). At the same time, according to TRAI data, by the end of November 2022, there were a total of 825.4 million broadband customers, of which 793.5 million are wireless users. Apart from this, all others use wireline internet.
According to Airtel’s website, the minimum speed of 2 Mbps is sufficient for sending texts and emails and much higher speeds are needed to stream movies or access OTT. Moreover, a broadband plan provided by the telecom operator promises speeds between 40 Mbps and 1 Gbps.
