Data speeds and net­work cov­er­age across In­dia has once again come into fo­cus as OpenSig­nal has pub­lished a report on mo­bile 4G net­works. As per the report, Navi Mum­bai has gar­nered the top spot in terms of 4G LTE down­load speeds across In­dia.

The report stated, Navi Mum­bai has reg­is­tered av­er­age 4G speeds of 8.72Mbps. Chen­nai, placed in the sec­ond spot, saw its 4G speeds nearly dou­ble, ris­ing to 8.52Mbps from 4.4Mbps reg­is­tered in March last year. Mean­while, at the other end, Al­la­habad was the only ma­jor city to reg­is­ter less than 4Mbps, as it recorded an av­er­age speed of just 3.5Mbps. Mum­bai se­cured fifth place on the list with 6.97 Mbps av­er­age speed, fol­lowed by Hyderabad with 6.71 Mbps and Delhi with 6.69 Mbps.

The report also says that six out of top ten cities are from south and west­ern re­gions. Navi Mum­bai and Chen­nai are fol­lowed by Kolkata with the av­er­age 4G speed of 8.46 Mbps and Bangalore with 7.17 Mbps. OpenSig­nal cal­cu­lated the speeds for 20 of In­dia’s largest cities, but it’s by no means a com­pre­hen­sive list of ev­ery city in In­dia. So while Al­la­habad is at the bot­tom of the chart, it does not mean the city is the slow­est city in the coun­try – it’s the slow­est of the 20 cities an­a­lyzed.

The other cities/lo­cales ranked in the report in­clude Bhopal(6.37Mbps), Nag­pur(6.33Mbps), Chandi­garh(6.21Mbps), Pune(6.18Mbps), Jaipur(6.07Mbps), Ahmed­abad(5.83Mbps), Ghazi­abad(5.75Mbps), Pim­priChinch­wad(4.93Mbps), Su­rat(4.76Mbps), Kanpur(4.64Mbps), Patna(4.62Mbps) and Lucknow(4.32Mbps).

In­dia is mak­ing gi­ant strides in the 4G mar­ket, as the coun­try has one of the largest 4G foot­print in the world. In its State of LTE report, OpenSig­nal said that LTE avail­abil­ity in In­dia is re­mark­able and users were able to con­nect to an LTE sig­nal over 86 per­cent of the time, a rise of some 10 per­cent­age points from a year ear­lier.

OpenSig­nal’s lat­est mea­sure­ment tracked av­er­age 4G down­load speeds among 20 of In­dia’s largest cities be­tween De­cem­ber and Fe­bru­ary.
