Jio is total failure, as far as Goa is concerned.
The data speed is absolutely poor. Even Tatadocomo 3g speed is better. I have complained many times, but Jio does not care. There is no improvement at all.
Why they should care?

Why comparing an empty network with a congested network. As of now comparing there speed would be stupidity. Let us see the speed after April, till then enjoy with Jio free services.
