Monday, Nov 04, 2019

Bengaluru-based ACT Fibernet recorded the highest fixed broadband download speed in the range of 45.31 and 47.74 Mbps between April-September 2019 period, a study by network intelligence company, Ookla showed.

“Hathway was in second place for most of the time period with a top speed of 33.69 Mbps while Airtel speeds rose to second place in September with a mean download speed of 34.43 Mbps followed by BSNL and GTPL,” Ookla said in the report.

Jio showed the most variability in speeds from a dip down to 17.52 Mbps in August to speeds reaching 41.99 Mbps in September when its new GigaFiber service was launched.

The latest telecom entrant though emerged as the fastest provider for fixed broadband in five of India’s largest cities during the period, while Airtel was the fastest mobile operator in 11 of India’s largest cities.

According to peak hour analysis, Airtel’s busy hour performance was almost as fast as Jio’s performance in the non-busy hours of the day.

“Despite having the lowest (7.0%) decrease in speeds during the busiest hours, Jio’s speeds were the slowest during those times, dropping down to 7.87 Mbps. Vodafone and Idea were almost as fast as Airtel, and since the two companies merged, there is a gap in speed difference closing between Airtel and Vodafone,” the report said.
