Why Reliance Jio Lagged in TRAI Data Network Performance Report?

Reliance jio came out with all fanfare and claimed that it's network is superfast and capable of offering best upload and download. I also thought the same given the time and capex investment by Reliance Jio to develop state of art network but seems I was wrong post TRAI report. Reliance fall short on many KPI'S whereas Incumbent operator such as Airtel performed really well.
The way report was shocking for Reliance Jio, I believe that it must be shocking for competitors to customers too.

As usual,  Reliance short back and blamed TRAI for bias nature while doing an assessment. Reliance claimed that daily fair usage limit per day per user is 4GB and post that the speed automatically gets downgraded to 256kbps and that might be the reason and TRAI did not took that into consideration.
Given the past trend of data usage in India, Indian mobile user generally use less than 1 GB data per month and Reliance claim that their users are using 4GB of data per day is somewhat not digestable.
Reliance jio is offering 9 SIM against one Aadhar card. In my point of view, they are considering 9 SIM allocation to single Aadhar card holders as single user and allocating 4GB usage limit to those 9 SIM. In one way it is  allocating fair usage limit per SIM of little more than 400 MB and when it comes to declaring number of subscribers they are consider all 9 SIM as standalone users. Given the HD quality service offering, user must be consuming 400 MB after downloading few small length video and then speed goes down.

This is what my assessment is and I might be completely wrong. If anyone do not agree with me then please comment or give your feedback.

The above analysis is completely based on Reliance jio statement on FUP and channel check executed by me.

It shows that Reliance will be heading for trouble moving forward.
