August turned out to be a disappointing month in terms of mobile data speed with all top telecom operators except Reliance Jio registering a fall in their 4G mobile data speeds (download). This is the fourth consecutive month of decline. The country’s largest mobile broadband services provider, Reliance Jio, improved its performance in August, raising its 4G download speed — albeit marginally — to 18.43 Mbps in August against 18.37 Mbps in July.
