According to the data released by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), Reliance Jio’s average download speed stands at 19.12 Mbps in April 2017, more than any other telecom operator in the country.

[…] This is the fifth consecutive time Reliance Jio came on top of the list, beating incumbent operators such as Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India, and Idea Cellular. Nevertheless, the average download speed of Jio came down from 19.12 Mbps it registered in April 2017. […]


JIO 4G speeds are max 30 kbps in Bangalore area, and most of times it is 0 kbps. Even 1G network is more reliable, faster and cheaper than JIO 4G. I switched to BSNL 3G – faster, better , cheaper and reliable. Just hoping for my refund from JIO. since I gave up on their false promises to fix issues by installing tower to improve coverage.
