Do make a note that these are LTE speeds and the results are slightly different when you consider the speeds on 2G/3G technology. In most of the areas under 2G/3G, Vodafone India has the better download speeds than other operators. However, there's not much difference between Airtel and Vodafone though. For example, if you consider the Bangalore circle, Vodafone is topping the list with average speeds of 5.3 Mbps and Airtel has speeds of 4.8 Mbps. And in some areas such as Mumbai and Kolkata, Airtel has better speeds than Vodafone.

In addition, the upload speeds of Airtel are also better than others in the metro areas with average upload speeds of 4 Mbps. However, in areas such as Bangalore and Cochin, Vodafone is ahead of Airtel. In some circles Idea, BSNL, and Telenor are leading the list.
