blatantly released misleading results about the Indian mobile market” Explaining the process by which Ookla conduct speed tests the company said it “applies additional data sources and mechanisms during post- processing to help determine the actual data carrier being tested” She saidmuch of the commentary has focused on dual SIM devices where the carrier displayed in the Speedtest Android application is based on the “Active Carrier” value returned by the device “Due to limitations of the Android platform the “Active Carrier” does not always indicate the actual data provider in devices

phones are dual-sim Therefore there is no guarantee that the speed which is attributed to Airtel is of the Airtel data network We are surprised that Ookla in its press release has not talked about this issue even though they had acknowledged the blunder to us earlier Ookla has baldly stated that they stand by their results and has skirted the main issue We will initiate actions as we deem fit
