Idea, however, continued to top the chart in terms of 4G upload speed with a speed of 5.9 Mbps.
The download speed plays an important role when a user watches any video, browse the Internet, access emails; and a good upload speed is required when a user wants to share data like images, videos and any other files through email or social media applications.
Vodafone followed Idea with a slight improvement in upload speed at 5.1 Mbps in August from 5 Mbps in July.
Upload speed on the network of Reliance Jio and Airtel showed improvement to 4.9 Mbps and 4.4 Mbps respectively in August from 4.7 Mbps and 4.3 Mbps respectively in July.
Both Jio and Idea have continued to maintain their leadership in their respective segment since last several months.
The average speed is computed by Trai based on data it collects with help of its MySpeed application on a real-time basis.
