Voice Services of all mobile operators were also tested to check Availability of Services, Congestion, Drop Call Rate, Call Connection Time and Voice Quality.
Results of the analysis publicized that service accessibility and voice feature for all the mobile operators is according to the requisite standards. Short Message Service (SMS) of mobile operators was tested for SMS successful delivery and that the SMS is received in a quantified time. All mobile operators are sending SMS before the typical delivery time.
