India Ranks 109th In Mobile Internet Speed And 76th For Fixed Broadband: Ookla November Speedtest Global Index

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 11th December:- According to data from Ookla’s November Speedtest Global Index, India is ranked 109th in the mobile internet speed and 76th for fixed broadband speed, globally.
At the start of 2017, the average mobile download speed in India was 7.65 Mbps. heading into the end of the year, average mobile download speed is 8.80 Mbps as of November. That’s a 15% increase. While mobile speeds increased modestly, fixed broadband speeds increased dramatically. Average fixed broadband download speed in January was 12.12 Mbps. As of November, it’s at 18.82 Mbps, a close to 50% jump.
Referencing the Speedtest Global Index, Doug Suttles, Co-Founder and General Manager at Ookla said that both mobile and fixed broadband internet in India are getting faster, that’s good news for all Indian consumers no matter which operator or plan they use to access the internet. India still has a long way to go to catch up with countries that have top speeds around the world, however, we at Ookla are highly optimistic about the capacity for growth that is available in the Indian market and look forward to watching how the market grows in this coming new year.
As of November, Norway ranks first in the world for mobile internet with an average download speed of 62.66 Mbps. Singapore takes the top spot for fixed broadband with a 153.85 Mbps average download.
The internet is the vehicle that most of us use to connect with the world every day. As internet speeds improve in India and consumers take advantage of the opportunities these speeds present, it only stands to reason that increased demand will lead to innovation across mediums that also open up new ways to create and connect with each other.
Ookla analyzes the performance of the internet in every country based on consumer-initiated tests taken by real people using Speedtest. Over 17 billion tests have been taken with Speedtest to date. From our observations in these markets, there are a handful of factors that consistently tend to drive advances in internet speeds and performance. These factors also apply to growth in India.
First and foremost is sufficient infrastructure. The strength and quality of networks is the baseline foundation required for faster speeds. Especially as technology advances, it is imperative that networks are built to adequately support emerging technologies. For instance, a network built to accommodate 3G speeds will struggle to fulfill the modern demands of mobile consumers. Equally important is planning infrastructure that can provide service to the number of people accessing a given network.
Another key element in growth is competition. When operators compete to provide the fastest speeds and the best plans for consumers, they incentivize each other to offer progressively better options.
A third factor in improving speeds is the consideration of new technologies that may boost network performance. One such emerging technology is carrier aggregation, which is when mobile networks serve multiple LTE operators. Carrier aggregation can increase the capacity of networks, especially during peak times.
With 2018 just around the corner, there is a renewed chance to focus on the development of Indian internet. Home to one-sixth of the world’s population, India is a dynamic market with opportunities for both national and regional innovations. Of particular note is the rise of 4G in the country and the continued rollout of new companies and plans that are making 4G accessible to consumers.
Consumers can track ongoing improvements in their own lives by taking a free Speedtest on web or mobile and on the national level through the monthly updates available on the Speedtest Global Index .

Essar Vizag Terminal to Take Week-Long Shutdown to Commission 8,000 TPH Ship Loader

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 11th December:- Essar Vizag Terminal Ltd (EVTL) today said that it was taking a week-long shutdown ahead of the installation and commissioning of an 8,000 TPH (tonnes per hour) Ship Loader that forms a part of the Company’s Rs 830-crore expansion plan to upgrade the iron ore handling capacity of the Vizag Terminal (outer harbour) from 12.5 MTPA to 23 MTPA.
During the shutdown (13 December 2017–19 December 2017), other cargo handling equipment, including a new reclaimer and a mechanical conveyor system, will also be commissioned. Following these developments, EVTL expects to achieve a cargo handling rate of 120,000 TPD (tonnes per day), which will translate to shorter turnaround times and competitive freight costs for exporters on the east coast.
CH Satyanand, CEO, EVTL, said that the shutdown is a planned move and is being undertaken without any disruption to exporters’ shipments. Given that we are replacing a 41-year old ship loader with this new one, the short turnaround time is quite remarkable.
Essar Vizag Terminals Limited (EVTL) took over the Vizag Port expansion project in May 2015 on a Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Transfer (DBFOT) basis for a period of 30 years. Since then, the company has ramped up the iron ore loading capacity of the terminal from 25,000 TPD (tonnes per day) to 70,000 TPD. After the completion of the upgradation-cum-modernisation project, not only will the loading capacity increase to 120,000 TPD, but the facility will also be able to berth vessels up to 200,000 DWT, with a draft of 18 metres, on the outer harbour.

Mahindra Electric at the Forefront of Tomorrow’s Movement

By Tricitynews Reporter
Chandigarh 11th December:- Mahindra Electric, part of the diversified USD 19 billion Mahindra Group and a pioneer in the development and production of electric vehicles in India, recently launched its new campaign titled Tomorrow’s Movement. Conceptualized by Mullen Lintas, Tomorrow’s Movement propagates and further establishes Mahindra Electric’s thought leadership in the electric vehicle (EV) segment.
The campaign effectively uses the insight that in India, every pioneering initiative is considered ‘a movement’. The campaign rides this wave and highlights the fact that Electric Mobility as a category represents ‘a movement or a revolution’ which to a large extent can be credited to Mahindra Electric’s pioneering efforts in the EV space. The campaign also highlights the fact that adoption of EV technology is an aspirational choice. It propagates the belief that the country will soon wake up to a new reality, a revolution in mobility that is electric.
According to Mahesh Babu, CEO Mahindra Electric that Mahindra entered the electric vehicle space in 2010 and since then we have been building expertise in the belief that electric mobility is the future. This campaign, developed in partnership with Mullen Lintas, is a first of its kind initiative to establish the EV category in India and celebrates the customers of Mahindra Electric who have already adopted EVs. It reflects the current context of the country taking the leap to all-electric mobility by 2032.
Shriram Iyer, National Creative Director, Mullen Lintas said that intuitively, all of us seem to know that Electric Vehicles are the future. Yet, the category is in its infancy and the person buying into it today does feel alone when taking this decision. We wanted the film to directly speak to this insight. To not just reassure this person that it’s the right thing to do but also call out our belief that very soon  other manufacturers and consumers alike  will wake up to this new reality, giving birth to a revolution in mobility. We chose to call it Tomorrow’s Movement.’
The Tomorrow’s Movement film is a narrative of a person who has already adopted Electric Mobility as his preferred choice even when the world is not ready. However, it is only a matter of time before mobility becomes electric. The film leverages the fact that, ‘how you move today, will soon become ‘tomorrow’s movement’ and it all starts with you’ and exhorts the rest to join the movement. This clearly establishes Mahindra’s thought leadership in the Electric Vehicle category, and underlines its contribution to steering the movement for a cleaner, greener and smarter tomorrow.
With the Government of India’s thrust on electric vehicles and its  mission to move to a 100% EV nation by 2030, large scale adoption of electric vehicles is the need of the hour to bring out this monumental change. However to give a perspective, currently EVs consist of less than 1% of all vehicle sales in the country.
