In this report, we've analyzed our data gathered in the 90 days from the start of February 2020 to see how Poland’s four national operators — T-Mobile, Orange, Play and Plus — measure up.
The Polish mobile market is vibrant and growing with a total of about 53.9 million mobile subscriptions.
Orange is the largest operator by market share in the country followed closely by Play.
In Opensignal’s inaugural analysis of Poland we found that Orange also dominated our Opensignal awards winning five of our seven awards. The operator won in Video Experience, Download Speed Experience, Upload Speed Experience, 4G Availability and 4G Coverage Experience.
Interestingly, we also found that 4G Availability is fairly strong in the country with three of the four national operators achieving 4G Availability greater than 85%, while Orange slightly exceeded the coveted 90% Availability mark.
However, this may be an area to watch as late last year Play expanded its 4G LTE network
to many more cities and we may see that continue in 2020.
When it comes to 5G, Poland recently postponed the auction of 5G spectrum licenses in the 3.4GHz-3.8GHz bands due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, some operators are moving forward with their 5G deployments.
Interestingly, T-Mobile stood out in Voice App Experience where it won our award with a score of 80.1 on a 0-100 scale, which puts it into the Good category. This means many users were satisfied with minor quality impairments such as occasional clicking sounds. The other three operators were close behind with scores of 79.3 and higher, which falls into the Acceptable category. This means that while users were satisfied, there were perceptible call quality impairments experienced by some users.
