India will eliminate the use of the 2G mobile network by 2019. According to a report published by CyberMedia, the main reason for the decline in 2G subscribers is due to the low mobile data rates coupled with the availability of budget-friendly 4G smartphones. If the current trend continues, you can expect complete elimination of the 2G network in India by the end of June 2019.
The report reveals the fact that the entry of Reliance Jio 4G has disrupted the telecommunications segment in India. Moreover, with the end of Q1 2020, India would not have any subscribers who make use of the 2G mobile network services. There has been a spontaneous decline in the use of standard mobile Internet services enabled by 2G and 3G after the entry of Jio.
The cheaper rates coupled with cheap smartphones has yield positive results in a bid to push the 4G into India. Hence, you need not have to expect the growth of 2G mobile network after 2020 because people prefer faster connectivity to get things done on the go.
The report added that even feature phones are integrated with 4G mobile connectivity. Moreover, mobile service providers have entered into a partnership with smartphone manufacturers to offer exciting cashbacks to attract customers. There are reports that the state-owned BSNL is also gearing up to launch 4G mobile service before the end of Q2 2018. Going forward, the 4G will be the default mobile service network instead of the currently available 2G and 3G.
You should note that Vodafone, Airtel, and Idea have entered into a partnership with several smartphone manufacturers to offer cashback for customers who purchase devices with their connectivity. This scheme has motivated customers to purchase the handsets since they will get the benefit of low-cost with a premium touch.
The report further states that the sharp decline in the price of 4G data per GB and the availability of Jio all over India crossing boundaries have created ripples in the mobile telephony. The availability of 4G will enable people to access the Internet on the go at a rapid fast speed.
