As per Ookla's recent consumer survey, 89 per cent of Indian smartphone users are ready to upgrade to 5G.

"The new 5G results show that 5G speeds are far superior to India's existing network. While we need to approach these early results with caution, 5G devices are already showing they can achieve much faster speeds, at least under artificially controlled testing circumstances e.g., no network congestion and ideal network coverage," the report noted.

According to the Speedtest Global Index, India ranked 117th in the world for mobile download speed at 13.52 Mbps in August.

Hyderabad is where all operators have seen significant growth in terms of 5G-capable devices, with Jio even tripling its install base.
