Airtel, Vodafone, BSNL Fail Call Drop Test; Only Jio Pass
Recently, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India or TRAI conducted a series of call drop tests, pan India.
These tests were conducted to test call drops on highways and rail-route – 8 Highways three rail routes were selected for the test.
Highways included: Asansol to Gaya, Digha to Asansol, Gaya to Danapur, Bengaluru to Murdeshwar, Raipur to Jagdalpur, Dehradun to Nainital, Mount Abu to Jaipur and Sri Nagar to Leh were covered in the test.
And Railway routes between Allahabad to Gorakhpur, Delhi to Mumbai and Jabalpur to Singrauli were covered.
An independent agency was recruited for this study.
2G, 3G or 4G network coverage of Airel, Vodafone-Idea and BSNL failed to pass the minimum benchmark score for call drops, and this is indeed a major embarrassment for them.
Only Jio was able to pass this test.
