Barring Reliance Jio, all the telecom operators have failed to meet the standards for call drop as set by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI). The test was conducted on different highways across the countries and rail routes too. Through the agency appointed by TRAI, all the operators had to undergo a test where the call drop was measured.
Vodafone Idea, BSNL, Bharti Airtel have failed to meet the benchmark as prescribed by the telecom regulator. It was only Reliance Jio which appeared to have passed it.
The chosen highways for the test were the ones between 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, The New Indian Express reported.
Among those rail routes that had been selected, the three run between Prayagraj to Gorakhpur, Delhi to Mumbai and Jabalpur to Singrauli.
