According to OpenSignal report, this speed test starts from 4G LTE download speeds, Airtel offered 9.15Mbps download speed, with Vodafone at 7.45Mbps, Idea at 7.4Mbps, and Jio finishing fourth with 5.81Mbps. Looking at 3G download speeds, Airtel topped the chart with 3.62Mbps, followed by Vodafone at 3.12Mbps, Idea at 2.6Mbps, BSNL at 1.76Mbps speed, and RCom at 1.71Mbps speed. Reliance Jio didn’t figure in the list as it is a 4G-only network. The average download speed experienced by users by all the operator’s 3G and 4G networks, Jio offered the best speed at 5.81Mbps, with Airtel coming second at 5.05Mbps, Idea finishing third with 3.69Mbps. BSNL at 1.76Mbps speed and RCom at 1.71Mbps ended at fourth and fifth spots respectively.
Moreover, OpenSignal noticed that LTE speed results on Airtel, Idea, and Vodafone networks have slightly dropped in the last six months, lowering from 11.5Mbps to 9.1Mbps. OpenSignal said a possible reason behind the decline in speed is that these carriers have also cut down the data prices on their respective networks, which has resulted in increase in data usage.
