Reliance Jio has been in the limelight for more than two months. Recently, the telecom company claimed that they are the quickest to gain 16 million active users within a month. Although it's a significant achievement, things have quickly changed after the official rollout to public.
To recall, Mukesh Ambani announced the service to the general public on September 1 and said that every user with an Aadhar card could grab their SIM card from September 5.
Before the official rollout, Reliance Jio managed to snatch every other network with its insane network speeds. After the official rollout, things changed drastically, and we no more see the faster data speeds, which Jio offered in preview offer.
Here are all the results given by the Ookla speed test.
Average Download Speed
Take a look at the above image. You can clearly see that the download speeds and browsing speeds have come down in the month of September and August. Most of the users are not even getting 1Mbps of speed, which is annoying many because Jio promised us higher rates than other telecoms.
Why this Sudden Change?
The simple answer to this question is due to increase of customer base. Having said this, the increasing load on servers is the major issue for this.
Increased 4G Speed Tests!
Users of Reliance Jio, due to slow data speeds are getting onto the speed test apps to check out the actual speed. Well, the Ookla speed test shows that more than 20 million users have tested the Jio 4G speed in the month of September, while other telecom' share only 4 million between them.
Calls Connect Barely
Before the official rollout, calls were connecting properly. But, due to the free voice calls offering from Jio, other telecoms started rejecting the calls from Jio.
Future Will be More Worst!
At this point, there are nearly 16 million active users for the new entrant, and already we have seen a drastic change in the service. Mukesh Ambani's goal is to get 100 million customers by the end of this year. Imagine, if Jio hits 100 million users, then what speeds will we get? So, Jio need increase their spectrum across the country to live up to the promise.
