Opensignal analyzed the U.S. mobile experience on mmWave 5G, a subset of 5G experience which is significantly different to other types of 5G services. We found the fastest average mmWave 5G download speed of 618.4 Mbps using Verizon.

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.
KPN and T-Mobile jointly win the Download Speed Experience award, but our KPN users saw the fastest average upload speeds.
KPN wins 5G Download Speed for the second time, and shares the 5G Upload Speed award with T-Mobile.
Opensignal analyzed the impact of different amounts of 5G and 4G spectrum on the overall 5G mobile experience of our users.
