TRAI is known to collect and calculate mobile data speed from subscribers from all over the country by the MySpeed app on a real time basis. Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel have been at the peak of their rivalry of being the fastest network in the country. Airtel had also taken a test report by Ookla into consideration and issued advertisements claiming to be the fastest network, which had then been challenged by Reliance Jio before the Advertising Standards Council of India. The ASCI had also concluded that the ad by Airtel claiming to be the fastest network to be misleading and asked the telecom giant to withdraw or modify the commercial by the 11th of April. Airtel had, however contested the finding, as did Ookla, which stood behind the accuracy and reliability of the methods used to determine Airtel’s status as the fastest network in the country.
