More 65,000 Mobile Towers To Be Installed In India

Since November 2016 to November 2018, the Indian telecom sector installed 65,000 mobile towers to meet the demands of the giant data growth and the improvement of service qualities.

In only 2 years, there have been more 65,000 mobile towers installed in India to meet the demands of the giant data growth and the improvement of service qualities. However, the telecom sector still needs to add another 1 lakh ones.

According to the Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI) on Thursday, the number of new Bbase Transreceiver Stations (BTSs) established by the telecom industry reach 6.34 lakh in the last two years, since November 2016 to November 2018. In addition, 65,000 mobile towers are newly installed during the two years.

The representatives of the telecom sector in Delhi include Reliance Jio, Vodafone Idea, and the last, of course, Bharti Airtel.

In a few coming years, a lot of services will be developed based on 5G technology; as a result, the installation of mobile towers on demand will surely increase significantly. According to some industry estimates, the telecom sector lacks at least 1 lakh ones. Over a billion users are also another issue to consider.

Akhil Gupta, the chairman of Bharti Infratel, revealed that the 5G technology has been researched and developed in India; however, the country needs to improve its infrastructure by adding more than 100,000 new mobile towers.

In terms of the number of Bbase Transreceiver Station (BTS) units, Maharashtra ranks the first position with 1,63,773 ones. The second position belongs to Andhra Pradesh with 1,49,901 BTS units and the last, Karnataka which has 1,41,353 ones.

In 2016, after the telecom minister Manoj Sinha made an intervention, the Indian telcos promised to install 60,000 BTs in a program lasting 100 days.

Moreover, along with the increasing number of BTSs, the Indian telecom infrastructure has been significantly upgraded. They are two vital factors to impact the connectivity across India.
