Reliance Jio Download Speeds Improved Drastically with Average Speed of 9Mbps, Shows TRAI Speed Test Report

Follow Us

Back in October 2016, speed tests from TRAI reported that Reliance Jio is the slowest 4G network in India with an average download speed of 6.2Mbps. However, the operator quickly bashed out all these allegations saying that their network is not the slowest one.


Supporting the TRAI reports were the Jio 4G users who faced several speed issues after the network gone live to the general public. But, here’s a surprise for all the telecom operators. According to TRAI speed test reports till December 2016, Jio is topping the chart with an average download speed number of 9.9Mbps, which is followed by Airtel with 8.1Mbps and Vodafone with 7.5Mbps.

But sadly, the upload speeds remain the same at 2.6Mbps of Jio standing at the second position. Surprisingly, Norway-based Telenor tops the list with an average upload speed of 2.8Mbps. In the third place, we have Airtel providing 2.2Mbps upload speeds.

When examining the monthly trend, it can be clearly noted that Jio’s download speeds touched an average speed of 18.165Mbps in December 2016. Incidentally, Airtel speeds were down in the same month producing average download speeds of 4.682Mbps.

The data is being collected from several speed test reports conducted in the TRAI mobile app. So, there’s no possibility of the data being a false one. Having said that, recently several readers of us reported that the speeds of Jio have drastically improved after the New Year Offer announcement. Also, Jio claimed that they are working on to improve the data speeds.

This news will come as a blessing for Reliance Jio as the company is severely criticized for its data speeds. Jio is still offering free 4G services under their ‘New Year Offer’, until March 2017, but the daily data limit has been reduced to 1GB from the previous 4GB. And we are expecting the true 4G speeds in coming months.
