A report by Tutela’s Mobile Experience November 2019 for the month of August – October 2019 showed that Airtel records the highest download & latency speed. This makes Airtel a clear winner in the latency speed keeping Reliance Jio & Vodaphone behind.
Tutela’s report was assessed for the month August to October & it shows the report on the basis of the mobile experience and usage of the users.
The report shows that Airtel has a download speed of 7.1 Mbps whereas, Vodaphone has a download speed of 6.3 Mbps, Idea comes third with a download speed of 5.5Mbps, Jio is placed at fourth position with a download speed of 4.9Mbps & last comes BSNL with a download speed of 2.9Mbps. An important point to be noted here is that the report shows two separate download speeds of both Vodaphone & Idea because both the companies had not merged till October 2019.
The report also provides a different result for upload speeds & it also shows that the median transfer speeds are responsible for the speed test results for a 2MB file download and 1MB file upload.
Vodaphone tops the list in the upload speed result with an upload speed of 3.6Mbps. The second spot is captured by Idea with an upload speed of 3.2Mbps & the third spot is taken by Airtel which has an upload speed of 3.3Mbps whereas, Jio & BSNL has upload speeds of 3.1Mbps & 1.7Mbps respectively.
For gamers, especially, the Internet speed is the most essential factor in choosing a network operator. With poor latency levels, the gaming experience can be hampered by a delayed Internet connection.
And, as far as the latency speed is concerned, Airtel again tops the chart with 26.2 milliseconds (ms) of latency. Reliance Jio comes at the second position with 27.6ms. Vodaphone takes the third spot at latency speed of 27.9, followed by Idea at 31.6 ms latency. BSNL takes the last place on the list with only 45ms.
In terms of downloading & transferring data, Airtel emerges as a clear winner for both the aspects beating other mobile operators.
