Performance of 3G Services in India : While in the answering to a question about the performance of 3G Services in India, the Ministry replies that the 3G service is still in nascent stage and it will take two or three years to sustain.
The 3G spectrum was auctioned in middle of the year 2012 and it takes 1-3 years for operator to roll-out its network and the roll out of 3G net works in india is still in nascent stage therefore to that effect the off take of 3G services has not been considerable. But rollout of 3Gs services ensures that the high speed data services are made available to towns/pockets, where out of reach of broad band services. Almost 80,000 BTSs of 3G services already installed in 5000 + cities and small towns, the availability of data services to Indian consumers have improved considerably. Presently 3G subscriber data is not available.
