With video games now the biggest form of entertainment (thanks in part to breakout games like Fortnite) and the smartphone becoming increasing the device of choice, gamers’ mobile connections have a great deal of impact on their playing experience. To quantify this, Opensignal has developed a first of a kind metric and used it to rank the world’s top 100 countries for mobile Games Experience.
In one year mobile Video Experience has significantly improved in 59% of 100 countries analyzed. But the U.S. is lagging behind on mobile video as carriers face a spectrum crunch.

In Opensignal’s first national report on Sri Lanka’s mobile network experience one operator dominated our award table.

However, Hutch and Airtel clearly have some catching up to do, especially with the latter being a 3G-only operator.
