    Jio's national average of 4G download speed was more than double compared to its closest rival Bharti Airtel which recorded download speed of 9.3 mbps on similar parameters, according to the data published by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) on MySpeed Portal.

Both Jio and Idea have continued to maintain their leadership in their respective segment since last several months. The average speed is computed by Trai based on data it collects with help of its MySpeed application on a real-time basis.

    The month of April showed improvement in download speed of Jio which recorded decline in two consecutive months- February (17.9 mbps) and March (14.7 mbps) from peak speed of 21.3 mbps in January but recovered in April. Idea's upload speed has shown declining trend since last two months -- March and April.
