Jio 5G Speed

In August, at the AGM 2022, Jio showcased that its 5G can deliver 1.09Gbps speed on a smartphone. It is the same speed that was achieved by the telco back in the trial period as well. However, in real-world performance, this speed is likely to drop by 60%.

As per a report from earlier this year, Jio achieved a download speed of 420Mbps and an upload speed of 412Mbps with a latency of 11ms and 9ms respectively during the trial. Though these 5G speeds appear to be impressive, these were achieved at trials, and there is an increased possibility for the same to drop drastically in real-life performance.
