On 11th of August, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has started a new portal named as ‘http: //analytics.trai.gov.in’.The web portal is for addressing all the issues regarding call quality and call drops of all the telecom operators operating in the country India.
With the increase in mobile usage from day to day, there is a parallel hike in the number of complaints about the call dropping. TRAI had taken it seriously and had laid the first step to provide user good value for his money.
This new initiative is meant for providing mobile users with the information about call drop, call quality and network coverage.
During the launch of the web portal, R S Sharma, TRAI Chairman stated that “It is a simple and transparent gateway where mobile users will get data on all parameters of Quality of Services (QoS) including call drops, network coverage or call quality. The data will be accessible in various granularities generally, at a total level and even down to the tower level. Customers, in a given area, can see the quantity of towers around the range, see the call drop rate, and what is the execution of individual service suppliers on various parameters in that area.”
The new website design is so elegant with the usage of good colours. After entering into the portal, you will see three major sections of quality tests from TRAI. MySpeed is the first among the three and Drive Test is the second one, and the third one is Quality of Service (QoS).
With this three sections of quality tests, TRAI is looking forward to implementing more transparent view of the telecommunication companies in India.Of all the three QoS portal plays a significant role in providing information related to the signal strength of the network, call drop rates, the number of network towers in a particular locality and performance of specific network providers in that area.
