With the autumn smartphone upgrade cycle about to start, with the recent launch of new Samsung foldable models and the new iPhone, many mobile users will be considering purchasing their first 5G phone. Opensignal has again looked at the 5G experience to see how it compares globally
Opensignal has analyzed smartphone users’ 5G mobile experience across all 50 U.S. states and as many as 250 cities. We found that 5G varied significantly across U.S. geographies, with our 5G users on the East Coast generally having a better 5G experience, followed by users on the West Coast and in the Great Lakes region.
In Opensignal's first 5G Experience Report on Switzerland, Sunrise dominates the awards table. The operator wins both 5G speeds awards outright and shares the victory with Salt for the three experiential awards. However, Swisscom wins the two measures of the extent of 5G, which means our Swisscom users were able to connect to 5G more frequently and in more places than those on its competitors’ networks.
