Telekom's dominance in our speed and Video Experience metrics at a national level was reflected in Germany's cities. Telekom won all 24 Upload Speed Experience awards. Of the Download Speed Experience awards, Telekom won 22 outright, tied in Düsseldorf with Vodafone, while losing to the UK-based operator group in Frankfurt.

Out of the total 48 Games Experience and Voice App Experience awards, 43 resulted in a tie between 2 or even all three operators. Telekom managed to win Games Experience awards outright in Dortmund and Essen, while Vodafone won in Augsburg. Dortmund and Münster were the only two cities not resulting in a Voice App Experience draw, with Telekom winning in the former city and Vodafone in the latter. Interestingly, our users in Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Leipzig and Nuremberg saw an Excellent Games Experience score (85 and above) across all three operators.
While we have seen Vodafone and O2 closing their 4G Availability gap compared to Telekom at the national level, this was even more evident at the city level.
