According to OpenSignal’s survey “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.




“India is one of the most dynamic and fast-changing mobile markets. The government and other stakeholders must continue to seize the immense opportunity and climb the global rankings across all parameters, to ensure high quality and consistent mobile experience for its one billion plus mobile users,” said Brendan Gill, co-founder and CEO, OpenSignal, in a statement.
