India is one of the fastest growing mobile market in the world. 3G (third-generation mobile technology) services are just started in India and users are slowly switching from 2G to 3G. Only few mobile operators launched 3G services and others are getting ready to launch 3G, But Mukesh Ambani owned Reliance industries Ltd has started trails on 4G (fourth-generation mobile technology). Reliance Industries may start 4G services in India by May 2011.
Reliance is conducting trials on 4G using Ericsson equipment at RIL’s Navi Mumbai center. In trails they achieved download speeds of up to 80 megabits per second (Mbps) and upload speed of 20 Mbps. And another good news is they are able to stream HD multimedia and live TV while travelling at speeds of up to 70 km an hour. Once the service is launched you may get 4G speeds around 30 to 40 Mbps in practical.
3G networks have to improve their service and coverage in India, Its very good if we get 4G connection by May 2011 with a better service. Lets wait India.
