Although 5G is also a wireless mobile network similar to 4G, but the range of use cases that it may support is substantially different which makes it but obvious that the QoS settings will be altered for 5G network.

Therefore, TRAI will develop a set of requirements that the telecom companies must achieve in order to guarantee flawless 5G experience to customers. In nearly 3-4 months, the regulatory body intends to release aa consultation document on the subject, according to a report from ET Telecom.

TRAI is also expected to evaluate the existing standards for 2G/3G and 4G along with 5G in order to to tighten the regulations and make sure that the rural areas of the nation are not neglected.

The communication infrastructure needs to be upgraded urgently if the network are to be stable and provide an exceptional 5G experience to customers nation wide. In order to encourage the deployment of small cells by telecom companies, the government is in advance identified and made recommendations for ways to increase the usage of street infrastructure.

Recently there have been many instances where customers at a large scale have begun experiencing problems like call dropouts and disturbances in the connection more frequently ever since the rollout of 5G. To this telecom operators had responded saying that this only a temporary problem and it will disappear in the process as smartphones are better prepared to connect to the latest 5G network.
