According to a study by Opensignal, Ahmedabad is the number one city in India in terms of mobile gamers. The mobile analytics company has published a list of India’s top mobile gaming cities regarding the number of users. Navi Mumbai and Vadodara ranked second and third respectively. It is worth noting that Ahmedabad and Mumbai are the only first-tier cities among the top ten cities in the country. Opensignal said that due to the availability of affordable smartphones, the popularity of low-cost data, and the increase in bandwidth in the country, second- and third-tier cities are gaining a foothold on its list.

Research points out that a good gaming experience depends on three key factors-User Datagram Protocol (UDP) delay, packet loss and jitter. UDP delay or packet delay can measure the responsiveness of the network connection to time-sensitive applications (such as games). Packet loss indicates the number of packets that never reach the destination. Jitter indicates a change in the arrival time of a packet. In order to get a better and smoother gaming experience, these three factors must all be high.
