NEW DELHI: Stakeholders concerned with the quality of service for Wireless Data Services Regulations 2012 have been asked by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) whether the service provider should be mandated to inform the minimum download speed to customers along with each tariff plan.

In its consultation paper on the subject, TRAI has said that stakeholders can send in their comments by 19 May and counter comments by 26 May with justification for their views.

TRAI had earlier invited stakeholders to give their views on certain amendments to the Regulations by 5 May but has now extended the date in view of the importance of the issue.

The Regulator has also sought views on prescribing benchmarks for minimum download speed.

In order to provide clarity to the consumers opting for data plans using a certain technology and based on the data on minimum download speed reported by the TSPs in the last three quarters, the Regulator wants to prescribe a minimum download speed for wireless data services on technology basis.
