Many users have complained about Reliance Jio 4G speed getting slower after the commercial launch in September. Now, Ookla’s speedtest website in its data has confirmed Reliance Jio’s drooping strength.
During the preview offer, Reliance Jio users had experienced superfast internet experience with data speeds above 50Mbps, which was way higher than average 4G speeds offered by rival Airtel and Vodafone speeds. Though, several were apprehensive that the speeds may be lower after Reliance Jio has commercially launched the service. Since commercial launch in September, several Reliance Jio users have complained about data speeds going slow, and some also reported internet not working at all.
And now, Ookla, a speed testing platform, has confirmed about Reliance Jio’s deteriorating internet speeds over the last few months, smashing hopes of many Indians who perhaps thought that after Jio’s debut in the market the internet speeds will race up northward.
Reliance Jio promises that the Data transfer speed of their 4G network will reach up to 135Mbps. With this promise, the Indian market has gone crazy and anyone can witness huge crowd in front of Reliance’s Digital store or Xpress Mini store and Ookla’s Speedtest.net is proof of it.
However, according to the latest reports published by Ookla, the company behind the world’s popular Speed test app shows that Reliance JIO internet speed is down significantly compared to how it was earlier.
“It looks like mean download speeds for 4G capable phones actually decreased 23 percent month-over-month from 11.31 Mbps to 8.77 Mbps, continuing a downward trend for 2016,” Ookla said in its latest report. Ookla also cited a report of Rtn-Asia which stated that Jio’s “networks are being stretched to their breaking point.” “For now it’s safe to say that 135 Mbps is an aspiration rather than a reality for the majority of Jio’s customers as even the top 10% of tests averaged out at 17.77 Mbps in September,” the report adds.
Notably, Jio doesn’t have a vast user base as its rivals like Bharti Airtel and Vodafone, many analysts at the time of launch had said that Reliance Jio will stand its true test only when it matches the user base of its rivals. On the other hands, Reliance Jio blames its own competitors for the services disruption. Reliance Jio recently made live data on call drops its users are experiencing due to Airtel, Vodafone and Idea not providing enough interconnectivity. The Mukesh Ambani-run firm added a link on its website detailing call drops experienced during 24-hour duration. Reliance Jio put out data for September 22 saying over 12 crore out of 15 crore call attempts by its users failed. The data would be updated periodically.
