Reliance Jio pipped its rivals in 4G availability and the mobile network operator was able to provide an LTE signal to testers more than 95 per cent of the time in every single region in India, a new report said on Wednesday.
"Our testers were able to find an LTE signal on Jio's network 96.4 per cent of the time in our latest test period, up from 95.6 per cent in our October report," the report said.
"Jio remained the closest contender in overall speed due to its high level of 4G access. It was able to deliver typical everyday download speeds of 5.1 Mbps in our tests, compared to Airtel's 6 Mbps," it added.
Lower latency means web pages load faster and consumers experience less lag time when using real-time communication apps like video chat.
On the regional level, Vodafone and Idea made their mark in several circles.
"Our results show Idea had the fastest 4G connections across Uttar Pradesh. Vodafone took our 4G speed awards in Gujarat and Tamil Nadu. Both were also tied for first place in speed in several other regions," the report showed.
While India is making big strides in 4G availability, the same thing can't be said about 4G speed.
