TRAI had conducted the network quality tests for all telecom operators in the cities of Bhubaneshwar, Kolkata, Pune, and Surat during the period of July to September 2015. And the results of these tests prove how the leading telcos lack in network quality and the so called underdog BSNL Mobile leads the way.

These tests were conducted by various independent agencies like IMRB and TUV SUD South Asia Pvt Ltd.

According to these results, BSNL Mobile provides comparable or even better network quality than these leading private telecom operators in the country. The various parameters on which these results are based are Coverage Rate, Speech Quality, Call Completion Success Rate, Call Setup Success Rate, etc.

The report lists out the operators which have not met the network quality guidelines put forward by TRAI. So let’s find out which of your favorite telco fails to meet those guidelines:
