Internet theek se chal raha hai? 4G is working like 2G? Video is taking forever to load? Sab ka kaaran ek hai. Lockdown! Yes, you read it right. With professionals working from home, youngsters keeping themselves busy by playing online games, millennials consuming video content and tharakis consuming free ka porn, mobile phone users are experiencing slow internet speed.
Mobile devices account for around 97 percent of broadband connections in the country and are crucial in supporting work from home. However, with everyone hooked onto their phones, the 4G mobile internet download speed slowed down by 22.5 percent. This was revealed in the report of average mobile broadband speed data published by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recorded in April.
The download speed on the Bharti Airtel network, which provides only 2G and 4G services, dipped to 6.2 megabits per second in March from 8 Mbps in February. The 4G download speed on Idea network declined by 19 percent to 5.1 Mbps from 6.3 Mbps in February and Vodafone network registered a 16 percent dip to 6.7 Mbps in March from 8 Mbps in February.
The download speed on Reliance Jio Network dropped by about 9 percent to 19.6 Mbps in March compared to 21.5 Mbps in February. The average speed is computed by TRAI based on the data it collects across India with the help of its MySpeed application on a real-time basis.
The download speed helps in accessing content from various applications while upload speed helps in the sharing of content by the subscribers like email, photo, video, etc. The upload speed on the Bharti Airtel network in March declined to 3.2 Mbps compared to 3.7 Mbps in February.
With around 11 percent dip in upload speed, the Vodafone network was at 5.8 Mbps. Upload speed on Idea network dipped by about 7 percent to 5.1 Mbps in March and on the Jio network, it declined by about 8 percent to 3.6 Mbps.
