Fastest 4G network in India: Jio registered an average download speed of 20.9 megabit per second in February.
Fastest 4G network in India: Data released by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) shows that Reliance Jio was the fastest telecom network in February. Jio registered an average download speed of 20.9 megabit per second in the past month. The performance of other leading cellular service providers remained more or less unchanged in February when compared to their performance in January.
However, it was Vodafone which offered top upload speed last month. Vodafone’s network registered an upload speed of 6 mbps in February. In January it was 5.4 mbps.
As per TRAI data, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone maintained a speed of 9.4 mbps and 6.7 mbps respectively in February. Idea’s average download speed improved to 5.7 mbps in February from 5.5 mbps in January.
TRAI published the performances of Vodafone and Idea separately even though both the telecom companies have now merged and operate as a single entity Vodafone Idea.
Idea and Airtel registered a slight decline in average 4G upload speed at 5.6 mbps and 3.7 Mbps respectively in February, while Jio witnessed marginal improvement with 4.5 mbps average upload speed.
Download speed plays an important role when a user watches any video, browse the Internet, and access emails; and a good upload speed is required when a user wants to share data like images, videos through email or social media applications.
