After about a month of wait and torturing themselves with the snail-slow 2G network of Reliance Communications, RCom loyal subscribers who shifted from CDMA can take a sigh of relief now. RCom 4G LTE has been launched in Delhi in collaboration with Jio.
RCom 4G LTE launch is expected across 12 telecom circles of Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, UP East and West, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar this week. If you stay in any of these circles then you would soon be able to enjoy 4G LTE on Reliance Communications network.
It is worth noting that the place (indoors) where the first screenshot was taken had very poor network coverage (-123 dBm). Now before you make any judgment about the network quality of RCom let me tell you another thing that at this place your phone can’t latch on easily to the leading telecom networks. Yes, this place has patchy cellular coverage.
To give you a perspective about the network quality of RCom 4G LTE, let me tell you that at such poor network coverage, you can’t even make a call on 2G or 3G network. However, even with such poor signal strength, RCom 4G gave us 3.78 Mbps download speed and 0.42 Mbps upload speed, while having a latency of just 68 ms.
In another Speedtest, again with poor signal strength of just -107 dBm, the download speed increased to 7.79 Mbps and theupload speed went to 3.8 Mbps while the latency improved slightly to 65 ms
