The problem is that most reports are a lie (in case of India) as the major population lives in villages and the data consumption in villages is really low so what the average comes down to is the consumption from urban cities where internet is better and users are high which dominates the overall number.
Most people struggle to pay for dedicated 10mbps home connection, the 'upto 40mbps' or 'upto 100mbps' plans provided mostly are served from cache servers locally which is a download speed alright but isn't really a number thats quantifiable when connecting to anything outside the network and counting 4G's top speed is total bs as it varies anywhere between 1mbps to 12mbps every few mins. There is no way india's average download speed is 34mbps.

in mobile network. It found download speed of 11.18 mbps and upload speed of 4.38 mbps in India.

Fixed line - India led the South Asia countries list at 72nd position with an average download speed of 34.07 mbps and 31.24 mbps upload speed.
This survey is pretty useless honestly what conclusion can you make out of it 😕 Speed depends mainly upon location and technology(adsl/fiber/4g etc).

I don't really understand how 4g speed is calculated.
I used to own a low end phone which had 4g and I used to get 5-8Mbps on airtel and absymal 2Mbps and less on jio.
Now I have a good phone with carrier aggregation and my airtel's 4g speed jumped from average of 5Mbps to over 50Mbps.

Is it normal for 4g to have speed comparable to 3G+ when you don't have carrier aggregation?

These averages are total bs.

In case of 4G/data speeds the average is taken only from devices which achieve the fastest speed possible. So consider most premium devices and those data dongles or routers. Thus a small sample is created. And the top 3%-5% from this sample of each area / region is taken in consideration to determine the best speed available for the country.


And yes its normal for 3G+ to have higher speed than 4G sometimes. Its not just carrier aggregation but network congestion too.
