Airtel Becomes India's Fastest 3G, 4G Network Provider Beats Jio, Vodafone, Idea: Report

New Delhi- There has been a lot of buzz in the telecom sector after Reliance Jio kick started back in September 2016. However, even after providing a wide range of free 4G data, launching several promotional offers, looks like Mukesh Ambani's company - Jio still has to come a long way to match to Bharti Airtel. We say this after a report released by OpenSingnal states that Airtel 4G network is the fastest one in the country at the moment.

In the report, OpenSignal provides a complete insight on the coverage and performance of mobile operators worldwide, in which Airtel clearly wins the competition. The post mentions,"Airtel didn't just win our 4G speed award, it wound up on top of our 3G and overall rankings as well. We measured Airtel's average LTE download speed at 11.5 Mbps, which was 3 Mbps faster than the results we measured on its nearest rivals Vodafone and Idea."

This clearly shows that Airtel still continues to be the best network of the country, and beats the new entrant Reliance Jio, following Vodafone and Idea as well."Drawing on 1.3 billion measurements collected from December 2016 to February 2017, OpenSignal compared the 3G and 4G experience of 93,464 smartphone users," states a media report.

Airtel tops 4G, 3G, and even 2G speed rankings. The report released by OpenSignal shows that the telecom network's average LTE download speed was measured at 11.5Mbps, which is apparently about 3Mbps faster than Vodafone and Idea, which accounts for 8.59Mbps and 8.34Mbps respectively. While on the other hand, the report further states that Reliance Jio's download speed was measured to be 3.92Mbps. All the calculations are provided by OpenSignal.

However, on the other hand, the report by OpenSignal further states that Reliance Jio has the best LTE availability in India, and further calls it to be"astonishingly pervasive". Furthermore, OpenSignal notes that during the testing process, they could find a 4G signal with Reliance Jio almost around 91.6 per cent of the time, followed by Idea with 59.45 per cent, Vodafone accounts of 59.05 per cent, while Airtel comes in at 54.72 percent.
