According to the latest data published by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Reliance Jio, once again topped the charts of the mobile broadband speed test for the month of November 2017.  It recorded the maximum downloading speed of 25.6 Mbps.

As per the stats published in the data by the telecom regulatory, Vodafone bagged the second position in the list with the download speed of 10Mbps. While, Bharti Airtel managed to touch only 9.8Mbps, which is third in the rankings and trailed Jio by a huge margin in this speed test.Another company, Idea Cellular settled with 7 Mbps in this test in November 2017.

Now, coming to the upload speed in November, Vodafone topped the charts with a speed of 6.9Mbps while Idea Cellular dropped to the second position from first in October with a speed of 6.6Mbps. Jio bagged the third spot with a speed of 4.9 Mbps, followed by Airtel which hit an upload speed of 4 Mbps.Though, Idea Cellular topped the chart in October registering the highest upload speed of 7.1 Mbps but failed to maintain the top position in the month of November.

In the meantime, as per the reports, the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has asked the TRAI to initiate action against Reliance Jio for failing to obey to the seven-day limit of giving the details of ”the Welcome Offer”, which the telecom company introduced when it began commercial operations on 5 September 2016 in the country. Reliance Jio had offered free voice, data, and messages for three months, under the plan followed by offers like “Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan” offer and “Happy New Year” offer and latest being “Republic Day” offer.

As per the reports from the Economic Times, this order issued on Thursday could result in a penalty of up to Rs2 lakh on Jio,a venture owned by Mukesh Ambani which now has more than 160 million 4G subscribers with an average revenue per user (ARPU) of over Rs 150,highest among telecom company  in India.
