5G Network In India Rollout Could Bump Up Broadband Speeds By 10 Times: Ookla
As India gears up for the launch of 5G network on its 75th Independence Day, Ookla® the global leader in internet testing today released its insights on the impact of the recent allocation of spectrum and roll out of 5G technology on the overall network performance of the country. The upcoming launch of 5G network in India has the potential to increase the median download speeds in the country by up to 10 times from the current position as compared to 4G-LTE, according to a report by network analyst firm Ookla.
5G Network in India
According to Ookla insights the launch of a 5G network in India has the potential to increase the median download speeds (5G vs 4G-LTE) up to 10 times from the current position. The findings are based on Speedtest® data from other markets in Asia that have recently launched 5G (Thailand and the Philippines both launched 5G in Q1 2020 and Q2 2020 respectively) that shows the differential between 4G-LTE and 5G speeds was on average approximately 9-10x in Q2 2021.
The data mapped by Ookla already show an increase in Jio’s performance since March 2021. Jio’s median download speeds have increased from 5.96 Mbps in March 2021 to 13.08 Mbps in June. Its upload speeds and Consistency Score have also improved. Consistency score is the percentage of samples which exceed 5 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload.
Currently, India clearly lags behind the markets that have already begun the 5G deployments, such as the U.K. and U.S. However in recent months, all operators have been working behind the scenes to help drive 5G commercialization. They are conducting 5G trials and have shown impressive 5G speeds.
The insights by Ookla further stated that the delay in the 5G rollout would eventually benefit the operators as they can procure the network equipment at a lower cost. The adoption of the Open RAN system by the Indian operators will further aid in bringing down the overall cost of the 5G rollout.
Delay in rollout may benefit operators
As per the firm, the delay in the 5G rollout would eventually benefit the operators as they can procure the network equipment at a lower cost. “The adoption of Open RAN system by the Indian operators will further aid in bringing down the overall cost of 5G rollout,” it said.
The prices of 5G smartphone prices have already declined and this trend will continue, spurred in India by partnerships such as Jio Platform’s with Google, as per the report. “Ookla is already witnessing a growing number of Speedtest results running on 5G capable devices in India, which indicates that there will be a pre-installed user base that operators can target from day one of launch,” it said.
