3G Is A Game Changer For India. What You Can Do With 3G In India.

My 3G LifeAfter a long wait which was frustrating, India will finally get access to 3G services in the next few months. India has been missing on 3G which is a norm in countries like US and continents like Europe. 3G not only brings higher data transfer rate, but also better voice clarity. Another advantage of 3G is that it allows simultaneous usage of data and voice.

In India, data services have recently become popular thanks to heavy usage of social networking sites like and and video and picture sharing services like and . Another important reason behind this is the introduction of cheap data plans from many telecom operators like Tata DoCoMo.

Tata DoCoMo

3G services were launched in India by BSNL in late 2009-early 2010. Since BSNL is known for its poor network, I never bothered to check out how their 3G service was. Recently, the 3G spectrum auction was concluded in India, and most of the telecom operators will be launching 3G services in India by this year-end or early next year. The first private operator to launch 3G in India will be Tata DoCoMo. Tata DoCoMo is a merger of Japan’s NTT DOCOMO and India’s very own Tata. Tata DOCOMO has promised to launch 3G by Diwali (November 5) in India. You can find more information about 3G at http://www.3glife.com/.

Tata DOCOMO is no stranger to innovation in the Indian telecom industry. Tata DOCOMO were among the first private operators in India to announce the per second calling scheme. The company has in a very short span of time managed to get a lot of customer and appreciation due to the reliability of its services.

The advantages of living a 3G life are many. Apart from the thousands of features about 3G which you have heard thousands of time I will list a few lesser known but equally useful features below –

Live TV/News On The Go

Indian Cricket Mobile

A 3G Life will allow me to watch live sports on the go on my mobile phone. I can watch all those cracking shots from Sachin Tendulkar or watch the beautiful goal scored by Rooney. Thanks to 3G, I will never miss all those exciting nail biting moments of a match while I am on the move. I can easily watch them on my 3G phone like HTC Desire.

Also, I would not miss watching my favorite news channels online without having to wait to get to a TV to catch on a breaking news, disaster or good news. It would make my life much more easier to watch videos on the go, without having to worry about the quality

Access Email and Documents Quickly and Easily

email

In my 3G life, I will be able to access emails and documents quickly on the go, making use of several internet enabled document creation services like , Zoho and Microsoft’s Docs.com to instantly create documents, all from the comfort of my phone.

If I realize that I have made a mistake in a presentation I am going to present, I can use 3G to quickly make changes to it while I am on my way to the venue itself. No more fumbling with the presentation just moments before presenting it.

Mobile Access Point

Being a blogger, it has happened to me many times that my net has stopped working during an important online tech event or while covering some breaking news. In my 3G life, I can simply use my phone as an Access Point by tethering internet to my laptop or PC and then get back online and finish my important blog post. Since 3G provides very high data transfer rates, I won’t miss the speeds of my wired or wireless net connection at all.

Video Streaming

videos

In my 3G life, I can stream videos right from my PC located at my home to any device irrespective of my location. This would allow me to share some precious videos with my friends and/or relatives whenever I meet them. The joy of recalling all those crazy school and college memories by watching those videos is only possible in my 3G Life because of the high download speeds offered by the 3G technology.

I can also use the 3G service to quickly record videos and share them online using services such as Qik. This would allow me to show people who matter to me things even when they are not around me.

Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP)

VOIP Calling

Thanks to the high bandwidth offered by 3G, I can use numerous VOIP applications on my phone in my 3G life. With the help of VOIP based applications like Skype and Fring I can talk to my dear ones at low costs, irrespective of their location. I can also have a video chat with them for free by using Yahoo Messenger Video Call feature or Google’s own Video Chat feature.

Access To More Information On The Go

Being a very active Twitter user, on the go, I have many times bumped across interesting tweets accompanied by a link. Most of the time, I have to favorite that tweet and read it later on when I have access to a faster net connection. All this, just because the slow speeds offered by GPRS will take ages to load the web page. In my 3G Life, I can simply click on the link in a tweet and read the article at that very moment.

Better Voice Clarity

Along with the above mentioned advantages of 3G, another important advantage of 3G which is rarely highlighted or marketed is that it brings better voice clarity. So in my 3G Life I can hear the voice of my dear and near ones clearly.

Summarizing

3G in India is no longer a dream, it is going to turn into reality pretty soon. With the help of 3G services, users from all across the country will have access to better features, high data transfer rates and better voice clarity.

Small businesses in India can take advantage of the 3G services to access their business on their phone, keep in touch with clients through email and quickly send documents to them without even having to have access to computers.

For people in rural areas where Internet has not yet reached, the 3G service will open a new mode of communication. Bloggers will also benefit and be able to do more things without having to worry about the bad internet connection in India. As for other people, they will have access to more entertainment and social networking on the go.

Is 3G life required in India. Absolutely yes, it is definitely going to be a game changer. I hope when Tata DOCOMO launches 3G in India by Diwali I will be able to live a true 3G Life.
