Jio speed throttling problem is completely in contrast with what Jio promised to offer with 4G Preview Offer. Jio with such massive bandwidth & availability starts throttling speed for users engaged in heavy downloading even few users are complaining about speed cap issue in Jio 4g just after starting services for few days.
Jio Preview offer is known as truly unlimited service when it comes to fact of downloading over 4G LTE, HD Voice/Video calling & sending SMS. But, Jio seems to put cap in speed once users crosses some unknown limit.
According to Jio Customer care : “Preview offer is truly unlimited & no cap in speed or data usage. Problem persists in server from which you are downloading or streaming contents”
Truth is when users downloading or streaming contents from same server & sitting in same place using Airtel 3G or Vodafone 3G or Idea 3G or even Reliance 3G, services are working fine without any further issue.
Jio Speed Throttling Issues
Issue 1: Speed available in Google Play store & YouTube but rest of the sites give slow speed
Issue 2: Play Store loading slowly but YouTube working fine
Issue 3: Torrents are working fine but direct-downloading sites are providing pathetic speed !
Issue 4: Browsing Speed is OK but downloading speed throttling a lot
Issue 5: HostSpot speed across Smartphones is fine but Internet speed in PC/Mac is very slow for downloading
More issues are there, if you are having any other problems then add issues here.
There are so many cases are available of Jio 4G where users are facing speed cap problem. Jio Preview users are feeling being cheated in the name of Preview Offer at the end of the day.
Airtel also using Band 40 for 4G but Vodafone using Band 3 for same 4G with greater speed. Jio is intentionally capping speed in Band 3 & 5 and checking network load in Band 40. Company will, definitely, upgrade speed & remove throttling cap after commercial launch.
Well, Jio is yet to start commercial service & Customers care representatives can simply ignore you by stating Jio 4G is now in Beta mode & Jio team will fix issue soon.
