MUMBAI: Bharti Airtel is the top performer among the mobile service providers in India in terms of 4G data speed, concluded a report by OpenSignal, a provider of insights into coverage and performance of mobile operators worldwide.

OpenSignal said its survey was based on 1.3 billion measurements from 93,464 customers on the major wireless networks between December 2016 and February 2017. It stated that Airtel?s average 4G speeds came in at 11.5 Mbps. In second slot was Vodafone at 8.59 Mbps and Idea was the next with speeds of 8.34 Mbps. Jio was fourth, with speeds down to 3.92 Mbps. This clearly showed that Airtel still continues to be the best network of India.

All the carriers were found to be below the current 17.4 Mbps global average for 4G download speeds.

However, Jio customers were able to get an 4G signal from its network 91.6 per cent of the time. Idea came in second place at 59.45 per cent, Vodafone was third at 59.05 per cent, and Airtel came in fourth in this category with 54.72 per cent.

Global internet speed test platform Ookla, based on web and app platforms, had recently shown Airtel as the top 4G high-speed internet provider in India. But, the report was questioned by Jio. Earlier this week, TRAI released a report suggesting Jio was the fastest 4G high-speed internet provider, while Airtel was the third-fastest.
