Mass adoption of data services can safeguard 4G investments: LTE India 2016
May 5, 2016
While speaking at LTE India 2016 N.K. Yadav, Member Services, Department of Telecommunications, Government of India said,
"Although the rural 2G services have crossed the mark of 50 percent, the real tele-density is still around 25 percent, but the data services were just about ten percent. To increase the data usage, there is a need to make the services more affordable." Shri Yadav is also Chief Managing Director of Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL).
According to John Reister, VP Marketing & Product Management, Vasona Networks, said,
"Indian consumers have a high interest in video services and exponential demand growth places strains on scarce mobile 3G and LTE network resources. This brings an unprecedented urgency for the Indian mobile network operators to overcome congestion and preserve the mobile performance that consumers expect. Better quality experiences lead to longer watch time, more loyalty and ultimately, market growth and profitability."
