4G is the latest technological trend in India. It has revolutionized the market in China and is all set to do the same in India. According to Cisco, mobile traffic per connected device in India will increase to 1.1 GB per month in 2018 from 60 MB in 2013.
Many companies are embarking upon TD-LTE (Long Term Evolution) services. LTE has introduced access to newer spectrum bands in the market. Wireless connections will be popularized. Besides, digital usage will also increase significantly.
Credit Suisse reports that LTE services will take at least two years to boom in India as the current infrastructure is poor. Besides, mobile devices are also not available at affordable rates for the masses.
The newer names in the 4G market may give a stiff competition to the existing telecom operators. A new entrant will impact the existing companies. It will lead to decreased revenues, dropped margins, expensive spectrum bands and increasing capex. All of these factors will affect the business of the companies.
LTE is Super-Fast!
LTE stands for Long Term Evolution and it’s the next phase in wireless broadband in terms of speed. Simply put 4G LTE is just like 3G but is faster. The key thing to note is that 4G has an incredible amount of potential for businesses as well as education. With incredible speeds, businesses can expect to have greater reliability as far as video conferencing, file transfers, and monetary transactions. In India, education has taken a quantum leap with the availability of internet. With LTE networks, online learning, MOOC’s and other aspects related to education can truly break down the urban-rural divide and bring people closer than ever before.
