For the first time, Opensignal has analyzed the overall mobile experience across nineteen South Korean cities. We see a different balance of power, depending on the part of the country we consider.
In Seoul, LG U+ wins the mobile Games Experience award, unlike the national result, as well as winning Upload Speed Experience and Voice App Experience. SK telecom wins the other two awards: Video Experience and Download Speed Experience.
By contrast, if we look at Busan in the far south, we see a very different set of results. Video Experience is now tied between KT and SK telecom, the Games Experience is shared between SK telecom and LG U+, while all three share the Voice App Experience golden microphone.
In Daegu, there are also many joint wins, with only the Download Speed Experience award going to a single operator as SK telecom adds to its speed haul.
While Incheon is geographically close to Seoul, South Koreans must check to see how the winners differ. Here, SK telecom has to share the Video Experience award with both KT and LG U+ although Games Experience, Upload Speed Experience and Download Speed Experience go to the same winner as in Seoul.
