IPL 2018 Live Streaming: Airtel Directed to Change 'Misleading' Advertisement

Airtel's download speeds in 4G stood at 9.31 Mbps, while Idea Cellular was number two with 7.27 Mbps.

According to OpenSignal's report, the availability of 4G in India increased over the period of last six months.

As the competition is not limited to just Airtel and Reliance Jio - Vodafone, Idea, and BSNL were also tested for their overall speeds. Do you agree with Opensignal's mobile internet speed report? Moreover, Reliance Jio had already announced a year ago that it had performed "eMBMS broadcast stream across Pan-India", indicating it is actively working on this service.

"Indian operators are hearing the call of 4G revolution".

Airtel held onto the 3G and 4G speed awards since OpenSignal's last report.

Reliance Jio, however, remained the closest contender in overall speed due to its high level of 4G access, according to OpenSignal. "Our testers were able to find an LTE signal on Jio's network 96.4% of the time in our latest test period, up from 95.6% in our October report", OpenSignal said.

"Jio is still far ahead of its key rivals in 4G availability, beating all three by at least 27 percentage points in our measurements". The testers were able to access an LTE signal on the Jio network almost 96.4% of the time, according to OpenSignal.

Idea and Vodafone are closing in on the 70 percent mark.

This declares Airtel as the fastest 4G (as well as 3G) network in the country with an average download speed of 6Mbps.

Airtel dominated in 4G speed nationally.

Having said that, while Airtel dominated 4G download speeds chart at a national level, it lost to Idea in UP East and UP West circles, and to Vodafone in Gujarat and Tamil Nadu circles. In overall speeds, Jio delivered typical everyday download speeds of 5.1 Mbps in tests, compared to Airtel's 6 Mbps.

Vodafone's 3G speeds dropped by almost a megabit between reports, while Idea experienced a smaller decline in 3G speed. The report claims that Jio might make the JioBroadcast service live and the JioHomeTV could be the rebranded version of the JioBroadcast service.
