Udaipur: Bharti Airtel, India's leading telco by user base has emerged as the fastest 4G and 3G network in the country, pipping 4G entrant Reliance Jio, according to OpenSignal's latest report.
The Mukesh Ambani-led telco, however, emerged as the market leader in 4G availability in OpenSignal's measurements.
"We measured average LTE downloads of 9.2 Mbps and 3G downloads of 3.6 Mbps on its networks. Despite its wins though, both metrics were down from our last report," OpenSignal said in its report.
At 5.8 Mbps, Jio's 4G speed score was still the lowest of the four national 4G operators, but because of Jio's enormous LTE presence throughout India, it topped overall speed charts.
OpenSignal said that Jio's already impressive LTE reach has gotten even better in the last six months. "Our Jio testers were able to latch onto an LTE signal more than 95.6% of the time, putting Jio 32 percentage points ahead of its nearest competitor in our availability metric," OpenSignal said. Airtel, along with Vodafone and Idea Cellular made significant improvements in download speeds. "Even as access to LTE improved for Airtel, Idea and Vodafone, their tested 4G speeds all declined. This is likely a result of the intense competition for 4G customers since Jio's emergence," it said.
