Out of curiosity I thought let’s test Jio’s speed at two different locations and to my instinct still there is no improvement till date. I also tried testing near busy area and every time test failed. Voice cracking and voice blank is next big issue on Jio.

Price hike is good but Jio seriously should focus on improving the quality else it would be another rcom. Charge but provide quality of service or atleast a base quality of around 2Mbps on internet with >1% of voice issues for atleast 90-95% of time.

Are you using CA enabled phone? If no, then speeds are bound to be low at most of the places.
