If internet speed is all you care about then, here is a list that you must check out. Opensignal, a wireless coverage mapping company, has come out with its latest list of top 20 Indian cities in terms of 4G speed.
As per the list, Navi Mumbai is the best city in the country in terms of 4G speeds. It stole the top slot from Mumbai, which has now dropped to the fifth slot.
Navi Mumbai registered average 4G speeds of 8.72 Mbps, said Opensignal. Second-placed Chennai saw its 4G speeds nearly double, jumping up from 4.4 Mbps in our last post in March 2017. At the other end of the scale, Allahbad was only city to register less than 4 Mbps with average speeds of just 3.5 Mbps.
However, Opensignal clarified: “For this chart we calculated speeds for 20 of India’s largest cities, but it’s by no means a comprehensive list of every city in India. So while Allahbah is at the bottom of the chart, this does not mean it is the slowest city in the country – it’s the slowest of the 20 cities we analyzed.”
Six out of the top ten cities were in the southern or western regions, with Chennai coming in second with average speeds of 8.52 Mbps, followed by Kolkata at 8.46 Mbps and Bangalore with 7.17 Mbps.
In its State of LTE report, Opensignal said that “LTE availability in India is remarkable: users were able to connect to an LTE signal over 86% of the time, a rise of some 10 percentage points from a year earlier”.
The company has an app called Meteor using which you can also check your internet speeds.
