By : |February 22, 2018 0

OpenSignal has published The State of LTE report for February 2018, where it has highlighted the average 4G LTE speeds across several countries including India. As per the report, 4G speeds in India are dismal and the country was ranked last on the list.

According to the report, in terms of availability of 4G signals, India was assigned the fourteenth position (down from eleventh in November 2017) with an increased 86.26 percent coverage of 4G. The growth is attributable mostly to the telecom boom after Reliance Jio jumped into the scene a couple of years back. El Salvador and Algeria were last on the list with 4G availability falling below 45 percent.

With an average 4G LTE speed of 6.13Mbps, India was ranked last out of 77 countries on the list. Singapore came first with an impressive 4G speed of 46.64Mbps on average.

In terms of download speed, Singapore nabbed the top spot; South Korea came in at 4th place; and the United States ranked 62nd behind regions like Vietnam, Uruguay, and Peru. Countries with the fastest LTE speeds plateaued around 45 Mbps, according to OpenSginal. Still, 4G speeds improved in certain regions of the world. 18 countries surpassed the 30-Mbps mark, and 60 percent had LTE speeds averaging 20 Mbps or greater.

While globally the 4G LTE speeds have reached a new high, Indian telecom operators have a lot of work to do to match the standards.
