India to get 100 Gbps internet speed by the end of 2019, ISRO chief Dr.K.Sivan claims

Gone are the days when it actually took us an hour to download a video song, a day to download a movie and more than a day to download games or other applications. Very soon, the Indians would experience one heck of blistering internet speed. Interesting isn’t it? Yes, it is.

As per March 2018 report, India ranks 109th globally in internet services. Though the country’s wired broadband speed is okayish, but still low as compared to countries that provide blazing fast internet.

However, according to ISRO Chief K Sivan, who claims India will soon get access to a lightning 100 Gbps internet across the country.

Speaking at a convocation ceremony, ISRO Chief K Sivan said high-speed Internet connectivity is expected to happen soon for all Indians to enjoy the fastest internet experience. The main reason behind the fastest services is because of the launch of three new GSAT communication satellites within the next one year.

“India has the world’s second largest Internet user base,” K Sivan was quoted as saying. “But, our present broadband speed is 76th in the world. ISRO has already launched GSAT-19 in June 2017.”

ISRO has launched GSAT-11 on December 4, 2018 and GSAT-29 on November 14, 2018 and GSAT-20 will be launched in September 2019 (expected date) according to Dr.K.Sivan.

According to Dr.K.Sivan, when all these GSAT-11, GSAT-20 and G-SAT 29 satellites are together they will provide more than 100 Gbps high bandwidth connectivity across the nation
