What 3G protocols in India?

A few days ago, I wrote a blog post A new low in Indian telecom policy on the lack of 3G services in India. It looks like this is perhaps a few months away. The question of standards remains [link]. Will the 3G services envisaged in India speak HSPA and `Evolved HSPA'?

Dhiraj Nayyar has a good article in Financial Express on satisfying both sides of the 3G debate.

Right now, I'm in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and a telecom vendor (Dialog) is advertising global roaming with "3.5G" HSPA with peak speed of 14.4 Mb/s!

  1. Ajay, I stumbled upon your this note after almost 8 years. Even now telcos are working on 3G - www.business-standard.com/article/companies/telcos-prepare-rollout-in-900-mhz-band-115121000972_1.html
