Jio’s 5G download speed score is reportedly higher at 54.1Mbps (20.7%), which is higher than second-ranked Airtel. On an average, Airtel users experience the fastest 5G upload speed in the country at 23.9Mbps.
“Jio leads both the Download Speed Experience and 5G Download Speed Awards with scores of 22.5Mbps and 315.3Mbps respectively,” said Hardik Khatri, Technical Analyst, OpenSignal, in the report.
OpenSignal also found that Airtel users experience the best quality when using video streaming, multiplayer mobile gaming and over-the-top (OTT) voice service over mobile voice apps with 5G.
In contrast, Jio is ahead of Airtel and Vodafone Idea in delivering the most consistent quality of experience with a score of 63%.
Airtel was the first operator to commercially launch 5G, using non-standalone access (NSA) technology, under the branding of ‘5G Plus’. Jio, on the other hand, has taken the 5G standalone access (SA) route with ‘True 5G’ branding, and used the 700 MHz band (low-band spectrum), which is currently not held by any other operator in the country.
