Reliance Jio has called in wars with all the telecom operators with their launch of the Jio 4G services here in India. Regardless of the quality of the service or the speeds, which has always been a debatable topic, Jio is on the forefront, and all the other operators are trying to catch up with them. However, on the other hand, if you have been following the news lately, then you might be aware of the fact that Jio has sent a legal notice to Ookla. What is it about? Well, the company has sent a legal notice for misleading ads by Airtel.

According to the new reports which we have, it looks like Android app of Ookla has been showing incorrect results whenever you run the speed test on a dual SIM handset. To shed more light on the matter, we have done a video on the same which you can watch down below, and it will mostly clear out all your doubts with this. As you might have noticed, the data was connected from the second SIM. And when you go and try to share it, it will be shared as Airtel whereas it was connected to Jio originally. It has been found that the app is taking into account the network on which the calls have been assigned which was Airtel in our case.

As mentioned earlier, you can check out the video embedded for more info as we have shown the live testing. First of all, Ookla being one of the best speed test app in the business, it is quite shocking that something like this has happened. Also, this is not just the case with us, even you can try this and the results which you will get will also be the same. And now talking about the news itself, Jio has sent a legal notice to Ookla for this, which is obviously the right thing to do. And secondly, it looks like this is not just the case with Jio, as a matter of fact, if you use any other SIM like Vodafone, etc. the outcome is going to be the same more or less.

Followed is a original copy of the complaint that Reliance Jio has filed with ASCI against Airtel’s Misleading advertisements.

To sum it up briefly, this is a major flaw which has gone unnoticed for a long time now. In fact, if you dig deep, then you will find out that this is certainly not the first time that something like this has happened. Back in 2013, Vodafone also received a legal notice from Telstra as Vodafone claimed that they are the fastest 4G network in Australia. And even Verizon challenged the Comcast’s advertising claims of being the fastest in-home Wi-Fi.

With all that said, stay tuned to PhoneRadar to know more on this as we will definitely have more to report on this very soon. Meanwhile, be sure to let us know what do you think about this issue.
