Vi led the upload speeds charts with an average upload speed of 6.3Mbps, followed closely by Jio with an average upload speed of 4.2Mbps. Airtel came in third with an average upload speed of 3.6Mbps.
Notably, this is the first time TRAI has provided clubbed data for Vi since the merger of Vodafone and Idea back in August 2018. The regulator earlier recorded data for Vodafone and Idea separately on its MySpeed portal.
State-owned telecom operator Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) has already rolled out its 4G services in select areas. However, it did not manage to make the network speed chart of TRAI.
