New Delhi, June 7 Thanks to the Jio launch that attracted 100 million subscribers in its first six months, India has reached 15th spot in the 4G availability globally, a survey by London-based wireless coverage mapping company OpenSignal revealed on Wednesday.
According to OpenSignal’s “State of LTE” report, India had 71.6 per cent 4G availability in the third quarter of 2016 which jumped to 81.6 per cent in the first quarter of 2017.
South Korea scored highest in 4G availability and second highest in 4G download speed in tests.
