    The operator scored over 95 percent in 4G Availability measurements in all regions, and topped 97 percent in 10 of them, including the Kolkata metro circle.

    The report was compiled after analyzing more than 10.5 billion measurements from 1.7 million devices in the 90 days from 01 June 2018.

    The report said Airtel's 4G customers clocked an average download speed of 9.96 Mbps followed by Vodafone where customers received an average download speed of 6.59 Mbps and Idea Cellular customers received a speed of 6.29 Mbps.

    However, Jio customers got an average download speed of 5.47 Mbps.

    On the other hand, Idea won upload speed experience category fairly comfortably, scoring an average speed of 2.9 Mbps. Closest rival Vodafone was over half-a-megabit behind, while the others were all under the 2 Mbps mark in measurements.

    Opensignal said while Jio won overall latency experience, Sunil Mittal-led Airtel came top in 4G latency table, whereas Vodafone led in 3G latency analysis.

    In 4G latency analysis, there was a very tight grouping at the top with less than 4ms separating Airtel, Jio and Vodafone's scores - although Airtel has managed to edge ahead of Vodafone, who came top in this category six months ago.

    However Vodafone's 3G latency score was over 20ms better than Airtel's - and it was this difference which saw Airtel sink to third place in our overall Latency Experience table, the report added.
