Ookla said, "India and Mexico had the slowest page load speeds for Facebook over 5G of any of the countries we looked at."

In a recent report, Opensignal said that median 5G download speeds have been dropping as the coverage and number of users increase. The telecom operators in India have almost covered the entire country with 5G, and now, work is ongoing to provide maximum coverage in all areas.

While 5G load speeds are faster, they aren't that fast as we hoped they would be. The applications such as YouTube, Facebook, and Google don't even require hundreds of Mbps of downlink to deliver a great experience. This proves that if India were able to match the network performance of countries such as UAE with 4G, the end consumer experience with common applications such as Facebook would have been better anyway.
