The Government Trying to Hike minimum internet speed to 2mbps

Times of low internet speediness on mobile and broadband networks might quickly be ended. The government has start up the development of giving a boost to the minimum-mandated internet speed from present 512 kbps to at least 2 mbps and more.
Telecom secretary Aruna Sundararajan said the government was mindful of slow internet speed experienced by internet users in many parts of the country.
Internet speeds are now close to the numbers assured by businesses in 3G and 4G data packs and ads. And, the issue is critical as India prepares for rollout of 5G services as well as a host of other requests attentive around internet-of-things. "We are very slow. While we have done a lot on (providing internet) access, we have not stayed able to really deliver the value of service that is required," Sundararajan told TOI here.
The telecom secretary said India required faster speed in the wake of gradual transformation of the country to a digital economy. These include initiatives such as smart cities, digital India programmes, efforts on digital payments, and 5G.
Asked whether 2 mbps - which is also being broke onward by regulator TRAI - will be sufficient for digital transformation, she said, "2 mbps is the basic minimum. We should positively command this. If at all, it should be higher than that. It cannot be lower than that."
The issue of slower internet speed has been a painful knowledge for popular of mobile customers, especially when download speed for videos and other such facilities is nowhere near satisfactory level. All this is trendy at a time when telecom companies are rolling out faster 4G networks across the country, a move that has increased pace after the take-off of services by Reliance Jio in September last year.
Older telecom corporations, however, have been opposed to the idea of having a higher edge when it comes to internet speed.
