According to my knowledge speeds of up to 2 Megabits per second (Mbps) are achievable with Third Generation (3G). The data transmission rates will depend upon the environment the call is being made in, it is only indoors and in stationary environments that these types of data rates will be available. For high mobility, data rates of 144 kbps are expected to be available, this is only about three times the speed of today’s fixed telecoms modems...So high speed is what one require these days to stay connected.

there will be several services offered by 3G, most important thing is, whether the handset be able to process all the things smoothly and speedily..

3 G is supposed to support varied services like.. MMS, internet, downloading & all this will demand more speed

Add your argument:

3G features

idea posted by S.K.BAGGA Material Mgmt Executive/Manager, ITI LIMITED

Why 3G, Here are the features:

  • Video Streaming that actually works.
  • Video Streaming is possible even over GPRS or EDGE but its very slow.
  • You will be able to watch a Cricket match Live on the road with live video and audio.
  • Video Calling.
  • Have you ever wondered why there is an additional camera above the display in some phones?
  • The camera is meant to be used for Video Calling. You can actually see the other person face to face and talk.
  • Faster Downloads and Browsing.

So you can do hi speed browsing on the go but one downside to all of this is that battery life is comparatively shorter for most phones on 3G networks

Android has done a good job of showcasing what 3G is all about. Further with its "open" app store, the best ideas always win. 3G will be driven by evolving user needs - many of which some of us cannot even imagine today. As an example, who ever thought of FaceBook and Twitter a few years ago?

well i would like know your views on the business aspects of 3g like

1 .will i be able to use a my 3g enabled mobile to open a cyber cafe in my village with 3 or 4 computers.

2.can it act as a substitute for my DTH and  can i sumhow connect it to my tv ...

3.will it replace broadband networks in cities

There are lots of new features in this technology from which mostly all have already been posted. The most interesting feature which i m amazed with is the Video Calling.  Its is an amazing feature. We could not ever think that we could see the person we are talking to while we are talking on our mobile phone, moving around here and there still the person is visible to us...3G has brought a very high degree of convinience though the person is moving very frequently from whatever place he was before.

What i think is its features are simply the best...

Add your argument:

3G systems carry both high quality voice and data.

idea posted by Kalyan Chakraborty Network Planning Manager, Motorola India Pvt Ltd

one use of 3G is to offer more capacity, so the operator may choose to configure the network so that it "pushes" 3G-capable phones (with suitable SIM cards) to the 3G network (when making voice calls), to make room for more calls in the congested 2G network.

All 3G cellphone systems carry both voice and data. A phone can be in either GSM or 3G mode.If 3G is enabled then it will be used for both voice and data. If the phone is in GSM mode then it cannot take advantage of 3G services or data rates.

Note that some countries, such as Japan, have ONLY 3G deployed and don't have any GSM networks at all (which is why the current GSM-only iPhone can't work in Japan).

Some advantages of 3G for voice: less power usage during standby (but more during actual communication), higher quality voice calls (full rate AMR codec vs. the half rate codec used by many GSM operators), can send and receive data packets while in the middle of a voice call, supports 2-way video calling (if the phone has the hardware to support it).

by Radhakrishna Marar, Business Analyst, Oracle  | 03 25 2009 05:34:19 +0000

3G networks should enable network operators to offer users a wider range of more advanced services while achieving greater network capacity through improved spectral efficiency. Services should include wide-area wireless voice telephony, video calls, and broadband wireless data, all in a mobile environment. Additional features should also include HSPA data transmission capabilities able to deliver speeds up to 14.4 Mbit/s on the downlink and 5.8 Mbit/s on the uplink.

Internet Everywhere

idea posted by Abhinav Garg Sales/BD Manager, Bharti Airtel

According to me, what is more important is the access to Internet. The World Wide Web is becoming the primary communications interface, people access the Internet for entertainment and information collection, the intranet for accessing company information and connecting with colleagues and the extranet for accessing customers and suppliers. These are all derivatives of the World Wide Web aimed at connecting different communities of interest. There is a trend away from storing information locally in specific software packages on PCs to remotely on the Internet. When you want to check your schedule or contacts, instead of using a software package such as “Act”, you go onto the Internet site such as a portal. Hence, web browsing is a very important application for 3G...

With Internet Anywhere, you can do anything - buy tickets, commodities, book seats in theatres etc. The possibilities are endless.


Actually, we don't even know how much can be done if Internet is available everywhere.

Better Applications

idea posted by Shyamal Maity Sales/BD Manager, AT&T

I agree with abhinav on the internet aspect but what more important is better applications, because third generation (3G) facilitates several new applications that have not previously been readily available over mobile networks due to the limitations in data transmission speeds.

These applications range from Web Browsing to file transfer to Home Automation, where the ability to remotely access and control in house appliances and machines. Because of the bandwidth increase, these applications will be even more easily available with 3G than they were previously with the technologies such as GPRS.

Hi guys

idea posted by Debayan Ghatak Assistant Manager, BSNL

Hi guys, this is Debayan from BSNL. Am working in Core Network that supports 3G. We have both 2G and 3G radio networks working, and ever since I started using 3G personnally (of course provided by my office), I have started liking it, particularly the GPRS part. Downloads are really fast, the whole world has come into my hands. It's nice.

Though it's taking time to attract customers, but once the critical mass is attained, it will fly.

You guys can consider using 3G.

I don't use this forum too often, you can mail me at Have a nice day.

There is no way they can crack this segment of phones even though they are leading in the world market in  mobile phones.  As there are too many players to compete with, there is RIM, and nwo Android phones to content with htc,iphone,palm pre, no way...
When will the new telcos achieve break even in such a tough competition..??
You don't mind if i comment on this one, yes even if the parent company is into IT services and it is having its subsidiary in another country like India, it is known as a captive center.
