5G Speeds Reaches 500Mbps in India: Ookla

On October 1, during this year’s IMC event, India received 5G for the first time. Jio and Airtel then announced the introduction of their 5G services. The early 5G speed performance, which reached 500Mbps, is described in a recent Speedtest Intelligence report by Ookla. Here are the pertinent information.

5G Expected to Be Much Faster than 4G LTE

Prior to the official launch of 5G on October 1, Ookla’s most recent report takes into account 5G download speeds. The 5G download rates varied from low double-digit (16.27Mbps) to 809.94Mbps and hit 500Mbps.

According to reports, telecom carriers are currently testing their networks, although stability of speeds is predicted to improve. Compared to 4G LTE, 5G is anticipated to be substantially quicker. According to the paper, this is simple to do under optimal network coverage and uncongested networks. Though it wouldn’t be a good idea to draw a conclusion at this time.

In Delhi in June 2022, Jio was able to surpass Airtel’s median download speed of 197.98Mbps with a speed of almost 600Mbps (598.58Mbps). Jio’s median speed in Kolkata reached 482.02Mbps, while Airtel’s was 33.83Mbps. Mumbai recorded speeds of 271.07Mbps and 515.38Mbps (Jio) (Airtel).

Although Jio outperformed Airtel in three of the cities, Jio’s speed in Varanasi was equal to Airtel’s median speed of 516.57 Mbps compared to Jio’s 485.22 Mbps.

The paper also discusses Indian users’ readiness for 5G. In India, almost 89% of individuals are prepared to upgrade to 5G. Top smartphone manufacturers include Samsung, Xiaomi, Realme, and others, although experts claim that iPhones are more 5G competent, with the iPhone 12 being the most widely used 5G gadget in India.

Hyderabad also seen a considerable increase in the number of 5G-capable gadgets. What are your opinions of 5G in India, then? Do you believe it will outperform 4G in significant ways? Stay tuned for further information on 5G in India and let us know what you think in the comments section below.
