The minister also spoke about the development of 5G technology in the report by adding “is going on in parallel and will be ready in a few months.”

When asked about the availability of 4G internet service in trains, Vaishnav said that the internet connection inside trains would only be available when the 5G network is rolled out.

He explained that communications get disrupted with 4G technology in trains running at 100 km per hour.

Furthermore, the minister stated that the Telecom Service Providers (TSPs) fiberize their Base Transceiver Stations (BTSs) installed on mobile towers.

As of February 1, 2022, about 7,93,551 BTSs have been connected by optical fiber in the country.

The minister pointed out that BTS used to provide mobile communications belonging to the TSPs.

That said, the decisions to connect them through fiber or other means, including microwave, are taken by TSPs, based on various techno-commercial considerations, including network capacity required at that particular location.

However, the minister informed the lower house in the Parliament that the major obstacle to fiberisation of Telecom Towers, as per TSPs, are high charges, complex processes, and delays in bagging Right of Way (ROW) permissions on the back of non-alignment of ROW Policy of States with Indian Telegraph Right of Way Rules, 2016 notified by the central government.

Last week, the government approved an administratively allot spectrum to BSNL and MTNL to provide 5G services on the same principles followed for 4G.

BSNL and MTNL would rollout 4G and 5G services based on techno-commercial considerations.

This information was given by the Minister of State for Communications, Devusinh Chauhan, in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha on April 1.
