Airtel is making serious progress in many places I tested in Chennai. I can see speeds consistently 50+ Mbps in workplace where speed was barely 3-4 Mbps few weeks back. Looks like might have implemented Indoor Small Cell with Fiber Backhaul and possibly Massive MIMO. The high speeds are 2 CA (20 + 10 Band 40 CA). Even in my home getting good speeds where it used to be 5-10 Mbps on average. Most of my tests are on OMR. Attaching few Screenshots.







The one with lower speeds are while connected to Band 3 (5 Mhz) and few are deep inside buildings where I didn't even get 4G signal before.

Higher ping maybe due to bad routing. I used to face this issue often in Jio. Airtel very rarely.

@Raj Or it may be because of upgrading the tower? I am saying this because i am seeing 3+40+40 and 40+40 from few hours which i didn't see before or if that's because of routing how do i complain then? Is there any nunber to call them.

Looks like they are upgrading the towers and also seem to have increased Backhaul capacity.

In Samsung devices in you can view these details in Service Mode using the dialer code *#0011#. No root needed.
