In a major announcement, the telecom operators’ body COAI has written to sector regulator TRAI pointing out discrepancies in test methodology used for measuring wireless broadband speed by its MySpeed app.
The COAI has also sought improvements in the app.
The letter was written in response to a white paper on wireless broadband speed measurement methodology and findings released by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).
The findings had been released in the first week of February.
“We would like to submit that a careful and detailed analysis of the aforesaid white paper depicts certain discrepancies with respect to the results of the TRAI MySpeed App. We request the authority to kindly consider our aforesaid submissions favourably to review and improve the functionality of the Trai MySpeed App by rectifying the discrepancies,” COAI said in a letter dated April 10.
The Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI), whose members include Bharti Airtel, Reliance Jio, Idea Cellular and Vodafone, said that it has found significant difference between the results of independent drive tests (IDT) which are carried by TRAI and MySpeed App of the regulator.
