In its fourth victory since September 2016, incumbent telecom operator, Bharti Airtel trumped new telecom entrant Reliance Jio with the highest 4G data speeds in the month of January. Airtel clocked an average 4G data speed of 11.862 Mbps, while Reliance Jio clocked 4G data speeds of 8.345 Mbps.
Airtel is not the only one that beat Jio to the punch. Idea Cellular came in second with an average 4G data speed of 10.562 Mbps, followed by Vodafone India at 10.301 Mbps. This data was presented by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).
Reliance Jio, the firebrand telecom entrant, had climbed to the top spot back in December, with a 4G speed of 18.146 Mbps, while Vodafone claimed the second spot at 9.666Mbps. Considering Airtel had slipped to the fourth position back in December 2016, the network seems to have made improvements to reach back on top.
The top four telecom operators are also currently engaged in a corporate battle over Reliance Jio’s extended new year offer. Reliance Jio chief, Mukesh Ambani, announced just yesterday that the company has hit its target of 100 million users. A recent report by Truecaller also pointed out that Jio has managed to obtain 23% market share as far as user base is concerned, making Jio the second largest mobile network in India.
