TRAI says that if public street furniture is used, it will eliminate the need for new and bigger mobile towers. Not only this, but the need for fiber will also end. The last date for the suggestions sought by TRAI is 20 April. Apart from this, May 4 is the last date for counter suggestion.
Now the question arises that if TRAI gets what it wants, then what will be its benefit. This will show a huge difference in cost. Because if power poles are used instead of fiber, then the cost will come down significantly. The commercial launch of 5G has not been done yet. If the plan with electric poles is successful, then 5G network will be easily accessible even to the villages.
A report said that if street furniture is used, then a major problem facing the deployment of 5G small cells in the country can be solved. Not only this, as we already know that the mmWave 5G band which provides the fastest 5G network has less coverage but if street furniture is used then its coverage can also increase. Overall, this new plan can accelerate the speed of 5G.
