With increasing technological development in recent years, India’s mobile operators have successfully made 4G LTE networks widely available across India as well. According to a report, Jammu and Kashmir has been given the top position in terms of video streaming experience on 4G LTE networks.
This report was launched by OpenSignal, a company that specialises in wireless coverage mapping. The second and third place in this regard was held by Kolkata and Delhi respectively. However, the North-Eastern region took over the last spot, where 4G users are still deprived of a good video experience.
“Smartphone users enjoy the best mobile video experience in Mumbai, Tamil Nadu, Delhi Telecom Circle, Kolkata, and Jammu and Kashmir. The differences between the regions are greater than those for 4G availability. Additionally, it’s noticeable that both Kerala, and Jammu and Kashmir, rate much more highly for mobile video experience than they do compared with other regions for 4G availability,” OpenSignal stated.
The basic reason behind this is that as compared to the other top areas, the LTE availability in these areas is highly low. The 4G availability experienced by smartphone users ranges from 82.6 percent in the Kerala region to 90.9 percent in Kolkata.
The company also stated that the mobile video experience depends on many other factors apart from radio access network, which is what 4G availability measures.
Also, it has been mentioned that the arrival of Reliance Jio has boosted 4G LTE adoption across India and has increased the usage of the 4G network at a great extent.
