Besides download speeds, Airtel also came on top in the Video Experience analysis, as its score jumped by over 5 points to pull ahead of the pack, following a 3-way tie in OpenSignal’s previous report. The report notes that India's Video Experience is improving, as its top four operators now have scores in the Fair category. Airtel's winning score for download speeds rose by more than a megabit in six months to 8.7 Mbps — over 2.3 Mbps faster than its closest rival Jio. 4G Availability score also jumped by over 10 percentage points in the last six months to reach 85.6%. Both Vodafone and Idea's average 4G scores were faster than Jio, but Jio managed to come second in our overall Download Speed Experience table due to its advantage as a 4G-only operator.

Idea won OpenSignal’s Upload Speed Experience award. Idea grew its average score by 4% in the past months to reach 3 Mbps, while all its competitors saw double-figure increases in OpenSignal’s average Upload Speed Experience measurements. Vodafone came second with a score of 2.6 Mbps, while Airtel passed the 2 Mbps mark to reach 2.2 Mbps.

The second award that Reliance Jio grabbed was for being the lowest latency network, with a score that’s nearly 13% better than its closest rival. Jio had a winning score of 62.5ms compared to Airtel’s 70.5ms, BSNL’s 94.4ms, Vodafone’s 73.3ms and Idea’s 84.4ms.
