Work On 4G Starts Even Before Deployment Of 3G
By on February 11th, 2010

Even before the 3G service has been deployed in India, India is now getting ready to welcome the fourth-generation (4G) service. The early preparation might help in introducing the service in next four years at least (Work on 3G started way back in 2003). The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) on Wednesday sought industry views on advanced 4G mobile systems, as it prepares a consultation paper on the new technology, that it said would be 10 times faster than 3G.

It is necessary that our country should be prepared to introduce 4G services at the earliest,” the TRAI said. Countries like Sweden are already enjoying the 4G service. he TRAI said it would deliberate on issues such as pricing of spectrum and licensing in its consultation paper.    There were talks that Indian operators might skip 3G altogether, but now that looks highly unlikely as we have seen that operators upgrading their network for 3G.

Do you think 4G might arrive earlier than 3G, considering there won’t be any problem with the spectrum allocation?
