The average 4G LTE data speed in India has continued to remain at the lowest ebb giving nightmares to the netizens. According to a report published by a UK based speed tester, OpenSignal, though the latest buzzword 4G is the talk of the town, but buffering is still a nagging problem in India for more than a year now.
It is recorded at about 6.1Mbps making it almost a third of the global average of about 17 Mbps. Thus pushing India into the slowest countries on this metric.
Although biggies in IT trade step up a 4G network, brace for 5G and offer fibre-based home broadband at starting speeds of 100 Mbps, but our download speeds are even slower than that of neighbours Sri Lanka with 13.95 Mbps, Pakistan with 13.56 Mbps and Myanmar 15.56 Mbps which are much lower than developed markets such as the US (16.31 Mbps), UK (23.11Mbps) and Japan (25.39 Mbps).
US data speed tester Ookla has put India in the 109th position out of 124 nations that have the high-speed data connection. This is way below the 23.54 Mbps global average.
