Reliance Jio is touted to be the fastest growing telecom operator in the world, and now, a new report from Credit Suisse claims that while Reliance Jio enjoys the most amount of network coverage, its 4G speed trails behind Airtel.
In its report, Credit Suisse says that Airtel 4G offers the best 4G speeds among the other competitors in India. The download speed of Airtel is at 12Mbps; while Reliance Jio, Vodafone, and Idea all come a close second with 7-8Mbps download speeds.
The report claimed that the slow speeds on Reliance Jio was probably due to the load on its servers. Reliance Jio reportedly carries 90 percent plus of all data traffic in the country, while its network capacity share is closer to 35 percent only. Jio has built a significant lead in terms of network coverage, and the incumbents have a fair amount of catching up to do (especially on 4G).
