Telecom industry body Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) on Wednesday said the minimum speed of broadband and internet should be 2Mbps, at least for the 4G services.

As of now, a speed of 512 Kbps is termed as normal broadband speed in India, which is far lower as compared with other markets globally. The government is in the process of making 2Mbps as the minimum broadband speed soon, which is still lower than many other countries.

“COAI supports the demand that the minimum speed of broadband be at 2Mbps on a 4G network,” said Rajan Mathews, Director General, COAI.

He said operators may drop the network to 2G or 3G when the 4G services are not available, in case devices are not supportive.
