The existing minimum speed is 512 kbps and TRAI has proposed to increase the minimum speed taking into consideration the demand for high speed and reliable broadband services by consumers.
However, this is being opposed by telecom operators including Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea. As per reports, the operators have told the regulator that making sure that broadband services are available and affordable should be a priority rather than mandating higher speeds.
