Reliance Jio 4G speed slows down in July, but still beats rivals: TRAI

NEW DELHI: The average 4G speed of Reliance Jio Infocomm saw a marginal decline but was still almost the double of its closest rival Vodafone at 18.33 mbps in July, showed telecom regulator Trai data. The average 4G download speed on Jio network was 18.65 mbps.

As per Trai test results, average download speed on Vodafone's 4G network was 9.32 mbps. The speed on Bharti Airtel network improved slightly to 9.26 mbps in July from 8.91 mbps a month ago. Idea Cellular's average 4G download speed was lowest at 8.83 mbps.

It was followed by Bharti Airtel with 3G download speed of 3.85 mbps, Idea Cellular 2.76 mbps, Aircel 2.35 mbps and BSNL 1.9 mbps.
