TRAI to set service quality norms for mobile data

Telecom regulator TRAI has said it will soon float a consultation paper to decide on the service quality norms for mobile data.

TRAI Chairman R.S. Sharma said a consultation paper to fix quality of service benchmark for wireless data will be issued soon, which will be put on the TRAI Analytics Portal.

Sharma was speaking at the launch of ‘TRAI Myspeed App’ to measure the real time speed of mobile internet.

The consultation paper will discuss the average criteria of data speed that can be assured, Sharma said.

Separately on Tuesday, TRAI also issued a draft regulation seeking to extend the validity of special data packs to 365 days from the current 90 days.

“After examination of various aspects of the issue, the Authority feels a longer validity of 365 days instead of the current 90 days could be beneficial for marginal consumers, first-time users and price-sensitive consumers,” TRAI said in a statement.

The draft has been put in public domain on which comments are sought till July 26.
