Airtel fastest mobile broadband network, Jio now slowest: Ookla

NEW DELHI: Broadband speed measurement firm Ookla on Thursday said it has found Bharti Airtel to be the fastest mobile broadband network, while speed on Reliance Jio network was the slowest in July.

The report, compiled based on Speedtest Intelligence data collected by Ookla between August 2018 and July 2019, shows mobile broadband speed on the Vodafone Idea network has gradually improved.

“Speedtest results show that mobile download speeds in India improved on average for all the top mobile operators over the period of August 2018 – July 2019, with Airtel holding the title of fastest operator throughout these 12 months,” the report said.

The report is in contrast to data published by telecom regulator TRAI.

The data compiled by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India shows Reliance Jio has consistently maintained lead throughout the year in mobile broadband speed with more than double the speed of its nearest rival.

Ookla has measured broadband performance of Bharti Airtel, Vodafone, Idea Cellular and Reliance Jio in the study. (AGENCIES)
