Reliance Jio has suffered dips in their 4G download speeds according to the latest data speeds released by the national telecom regulator TRAI. What is interesting is that other players in the market including Idea, Vodafone and Airtel have maintained their download speeds.
The challenge for Jio was not to create a new market for a new sort of demand it wished to create, it was rather about replacing the existing players by cutting their share of earnings, making a hole in their pockets and to do this Jio had adequate plans fuelled with apt resources that were required to make space in an already competitive and ever-growing market like India.
Taking into account the data shared by TRAI’s MySpeed app, the Jio 4G download speeds were 14.7Mbps in April 2018, down by roughly 33 percent from just two months ago, when it was at 21.3Mbps. Jio hit its peak download speeds in December last year when the TRAI app registered 4G download speeds of 25.6Mbps. Airtel stood at the second position in April 2018 download speeds rankings in India at 9.2Mbps, followed by Idea at 7.4Mbps and Vodafone at 7.1Mbps.
