Reliance Jio Tops TRAI’s My Speed Chart For the Seventh Consecutive Time; Registered Average Speed of 18.331 Mbps in July 2017

By September 5th, 2017 AT 8:15 PM

While the tariff plan war is still on between Reliance Jio and incumbent telecom operators, the newcomer is silently dominating the Trai’s My Speed monthly data report. In Reliance Jio’s nascent stages or to be precise exactly a year ago, the operator was under tremendous pressure due to poor LTE speed claims from the customers.


However, since the start of this year, Trai’s MySpeed portal reports have rated Reliance Jio as the fastest telecom operator in India. The telecom regulator has now released the data it collected from speed test reports conducted by several users across the country in the month of July 2017.

And guess what, Reliance Jio is still leading the chart with an average download speed of 18.331 Mbps, nearly double the speed of incumbent telecom operators- Airtel, Vodafone, and Idea Cellular. Both Vodafone India’s and Idea Cellular’s average download speed saw a dip in July 2017, while Airtel’s download speeds are marginally increased.


Vodafone India is now second in the list with an average download speed of 9.325 Mbps, followed by Airtel and Idea Cellular with 9.266 Mbps and 8.833 Mbps. Maybe next month, we might see Airtel coming to the second position, seeing the consistent dip of internet speeds of Vodafone and Idea Cellular.


However, when it comes to average upload speed, Vodafone and Idea tops the chart in the 4G technology. Idea Cellular is the top operator with an average upload speed of 6.292 Mbps in July 2017, followed by Vodafone with 5.782 Mbps, Reliance Jio with 4.225 Mbps, and Bharti Airtel with 4.123 Mbps.


For months now, Airtel is ranking at the bottom in the upload speed department. In 3G technology, Vodafone registered average download speed of 4.319 Mbps, followed by Bharti Airtel with 3.852 Mbps download speed. Idea Cellular is third on the list with 2.766 Mbps. Surprisingly, Aircel registered an average download speed of 2.356 Mbps, which is followed by state-run operator BSNL with 1.903 Mbps.

In 3G upload speed, Vodafone is on top with 1.905 Mbps average upload speed in July 2017, followed by Bharti Airtel with 1.625 Mbps and Idea Cellular with 1.540 Mbps speed. Aircel registered an upload speed of 1.289 Mbps, while BSNL has 1.105 Mbps upload speed in June 2017.

Jio gives the most pathetic 4G speeds whenever I have tested. This is both in Mumbai and Maharashtra circle. I’ve never gotten more than 1 – 2 Mbps. And no, it’s not my phone as I have tested it with multiple phones.


I m getting avg dl speeds of 10 to 15 mbps at most of the locations in mumbai


This is what I’m getting right now. Location: Worli area in Mumbai.
