India’s one billion plus mobile phone users can use the tiktik app to compare Airtel vs Jio vs Idea vs Vodafone vs any telecom operator for coverage, speed and my offers.
Mobile phone users can port to the best network on a single tap. “I know of users who tried to switch networks using our app and were offered 50 percent discount as retention offers,” Y Ravi said.
https://app.tiktik.in analyses the publicly available operator information on TRAI website to present a five-star rating for all networks in user’s locality.
Some operators did not accept speed and coverage details provided by TRAI website because the TRAI gives details based on crowd sourced data without any analysis. The crowd sourced data has limitations because of a tiny sample size. Plus, some analysts believe that crowd sourced information can be manipulated.
TRAI app shows Jio as the best network in terms of speed.
But Airtel is the clear speed king in India, according to several third party analysis done in the last 12 months.
The main limitation of the tiktik platform is the fact that it will rely on TRAI information for sharing any comparison on coverage and speed.
