New Delhi, June 23: With a surge in 4G adoption in the country, Reliance Jio has replaced Huawei as the most favoured 4G/LTE data card vendor (in terms of market share/unit shipments) in the second half of financial year 2016-2017.

“Market share of Reliance Jio grew from 12 per cent in first half to 77 per cent in the second half due to free data services along with comparatively lower price of its Mi-Fi data cards,” said Shipra Sinha, Lead Analyst, Industry Intelligence and Channels Research Practices, CyberMedia Research, in a statement late on Thursday.

Huawei shipments plunged sequentially by 36 per cent. The vendor’s market share decreased from 33 per cent in the first half to 10 per cent in the second.

ZTE shipments witnessed 6 per cent sequential growth while other vendors like Alcatel, D-Link saw a fall.

The Indian data cards market registered a 107 per cent jump in the second half of financial year 2016-2017 to 3.6 million over the first half in terms of units shipped, the CMR’s monthly market review said.

“Mi-Fi devices led the growth of LTE/4G technology in the second half. LTE based Mi-Fi devices jumped sequentially by 333 per cent in the same period,” Sinha added.

Mi-Fi is a portable broadband device that allows multiple end users and mobile devices to share a 3G or 4G mobile broadband Internet connection.

LTE/4G data card shipments witnessed 228 per cent sequential rise to 3.3 million in the second half.

LTE/4G replaced 3G as the most favoured technology in the data cards market.

3G shipments declined sequentially by 67 per cent in the second half of the same period when compared to the first half.

Data cards with data rate of 150 Mbps contributed around 92 per cent to overall shipments.

“Mi-Fi devices are expected to show further rise in the future. In-built battery with anywhere, anytime data connectivity because of the various affordable data plans in Mi-Fi devices are the key features contributing to its growth,” Shipra said.

Large number of user support with a single device is also one of the reasons for the growth in Mi-Fi devices.

“Significant push by telecom service providers is also making and continue to make Mi-Fi cards the most favoured option in India,” Shipra added.

Since the end of October, a few hundred users have taken yo Apple’s forums to report that their iPhone 12 (with reports seemingly covering all fourmodels) drops the cellular connection on 5G and 4G networks. This seems to be happening more often with Verizon and AT&T users but T-Mobile clients experience the issue too.

Multiple reports arise of iPhone 12-series losing LTE and 5G service

A separate Reddit thread has been created just for this and owners of iPhone 12 say that this happens mostly while they are traveling by car. The workaround, for now, is to turn on the airplane mode on and off again. One of the commenters said that he was able to reach one of the PR execs and he confirmed that Apple is aware of the issue and is currently investigating. Perhaps a fix is on its way.

UK bans installation of Huawei 5G telecom gear from Sep 2021

The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) designated Chinese telecom companies, Huawei and ZTE, as national security risks to America’s communications networks.

London: The UK government announced on Monday that the Chinese telecom giant Huawei will not be able to install its 5G equipments in the country from September 2021.

The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport said that as per its earlier decision, the UK carriers will no longer be able to install Huawei equipment beginning September 2021.

The UK government has laid out a roadmap for removing all telecoms equipment made by “high risk vendors,” including Huawei, from the country’s 5G network by 2027, reports CNET.

In July this year, the UK government had announced a ban on the purchase of new Huawei kits for 5G from next year and said that the Chinese telecom giant’s equipment will be completely removed from 5G networks by the end of 2027.

The telecoms operators have seven years to remove its existing technology from their 5G infrastructure at an expected cost of 2 billion pounds.

The decision came following new advice produced by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) on the impact of US sanctions against the telecommunications vendor.

The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) designated Chinese telecom companies, Huawei and ZTE, as national security risks to America’s communications networks.

In a U-turn, the UK government that earlier allowed Huawei to sell its 5G technology in the country, signalled a tougher stand against the Chinese telecom giant.

Huawei called the decision “bad news for anyone in the UK with a mobile phone”.

Struggling to keep its consumer business afloat in the wake of the US sanctions, Huawei this month announced to sell off its Honor smartphone business assets to China-based Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology Co Ltd.

The company said that the sale — which could be around $15 billion according to multiple reports — will help Honor’s channel sellers and suppliers make it through this difficult time.

Honor smartphones have been hit by US sanctions that prevent Huawei from doing business with the US companies.
