In our regional analysis, we compared six large cities in Australia using our six key metrics. There were some interesting regional results that differed from the national results and Telstra was a standout in several cities.
At a regional level Telstra was the leader in Video Experience in four cities but tied with Vodafone in two — Brisbane and Canberra-Queanbeyan.
Likewise, in Games Experience Telstra was the leader in five cities but tied with Optus in just one city — Canberra-Queanbeyan.
Telstra won first place in the Voice App Experience in four cities but tied with Optus in Perth for the top spot and there was a three-way tie for this measure of the mobile experience in Canberra-Queanbeyan.
In Perth both Optus and Telstra also statistically tied for the lead in 4G Availability with Telstra scoring 95.7% and Optus scoring 96.1%. And in Canberra-Queanbeyan all three operators had strong 4G Availability scores (above 95%). There’s a strong likelihood that Voice App Experience is better when there is strong 4G Availability so it makes sense that those two metrics are aligned in those cities.
In our speed metrics, Telstra was the leader in Download Speed Experience in five cities but tied with Optus in Canberra-Queanbeyan. In Adelaide we saw Telstra’s Download Speed Experience soar to 73.4 Mbps, which was 55.2% higher than its national score of 47.3 Mbps.
In Upload Speed Experience, Telstra won in three cities and tied in two cities. Vodafone won in Canberra-Queanbeyan where it had upload speeds of 12.2 Mbps.
