OpenSignal, one of the pioneers in testing the mobile data speeds has been working on the report of India’s fastest mobile network. And to show a sneak peak of what they are working on, the company has released a short report showing the fastest network area in the country and the most covered LTE area in the country.

OpenSignal has conducted the tests over the previous three months in India’s biggest cities. According to the report, Mumbai came out on top of the speed test ranking with LTE speeds of 6.9 Mbps. Apart from Mumbai, Kolkata is another city with LTE speeds of over 6 Mbps. Hyderabad and Bangalore follow the two with 5.5 Mbps and 5.4 Mbps respectively.

The report also claims that speeds in capital city Delhi are not up to the mark with just 4.6 Mbps, which is underwhelming. Gujarati metropolis Ahmedabad ranked lowest with a speed score of 3.9 Mbps.

Furthermore, the report also released the LTE availability in India’s ten biggest cities. According to the OpenSignal, the users of Ahmedabad and Surat were able to latch onto an LTE signal 85 percent of the time. With that said, nine out of ten cities have landed above 75 percent in LTE availability scores and the only city missed was Pune with 73.2 percent LTE availability.

OpenSignal claims that ‘Indian operators appear to be doing an excellent job making LTE consistently accessible in the big cities. According to OpenSignal’s State of LTE report, the typical LTE download speed globally is 17.4 Mbps, and we’re starting to see many countries push their average speeds well beyond 30 Mbps. In India’s cities, the signals are there, but they’re still underpowered.”

OpenSignal will continue to publish more data from India and also they will releasing their first public report based on the speeds offered by Indian telecom operators. Meanwhile, if you’re a smartphone user, you can download the OpenSignal app from the Google Play Store to be part of the report.
