Reliance Jio 4G average speeds slowest in India: OpenSignal 25.7.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Since Reliance Jio entered the league of network providers, the real competition between the carriers became visible. Now more than ever, people started to aggressively draw comparisons between the services being offered to us. Suddenly people are more concerned than ever about the network speeds they get. And amid all of this sprouted the battle between Airtel and Reliance Jio, both of whom blame each other for creating a monopoly in the market and faking their internet speeds, respectively. And now in the middle of the rivalry, OpenSignal  has shared some new statistics regarding network speed that are sure to make things more interesting. Before we discuss the statistics, to get a little perspective about what the research is, here is a scenario. A network operator proclaims connection speeds of between 300 Mbps and 800 Mbps.

Mobile tariffs to continue to be under forbearance: TRAI 22.7.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Mobile tariffs will continue to be under forbearance, ie, governed by market forces, and no floor price will be fixed for voice and data services, telecom regulator TRAI said on Friday. Under forbearance regime, operators are allowed to fix their own tariffs on grounds that there is enough competition in the market. This forbearance is going on since 2003. Operators have to inform TRAI about their tariff plans within seven days of launch. If a minimum floor price had been set, it could have meant an end to freebies in the market. "We had detailed discussions and the consensus at the end of the meeting was that for the time being we don't need to pursue the idea of fixing a floor price. Prices will continue under the principles of forbearance. That is the conclusion," TRAI Chairman RS Sharma said. "It (fixing floor price) is not a workable idea... Forbearance has stood the test of time," Sharma said after two-hour long meeting with all the telecom operators. The consultation paper on introduction of 5G is ...
