Opensignal has analyzed the 5G experience across 43 U.S. states, as well as the capital Washington, D.C., to understand how the 5G experience varies across the nation.
T-Mobile dominates Opensignal’s regional 5G awards on both measures of the extent of 5G networks. In fact, T-Mobile wins all of the regional 5G Availability awards outright, as well as 40 of the 44 5G Reach awards. T-Mobile shares 5G Reach with AT&T in Arkansas, California, Louisiana and Massachusetts. We observed the highest 5G Availability on T-Mobile in the capital D.C. where our users spent 46% of their time with an active 5G connection. Besides, our T-Mobile users in D.C. and Illinois experienced the highest scores in 5G Reach, which means they were able to connect to 5G in the largest share of locations they visited.
Verizon wins 31 5G Games Experience regional awards outright, while sharing the award in a further 10 regions. Verizon achieved the largest number of Good (75-85) scores in 5G Games Experience (37) compared with 22 for AT&T and 13 for T-Mobile. No operator scored in the Excellent 5G Games Experience category (85 or above). Verizon also collects 40 regional awards in 5G Voice App Experience, half of which are sole victories. However, all of Verizon’s 5G Voice App Experience scores were in the Good category (80-87) compared to 40 for AT&T and 39 for T-Mobile, which recorded four and five Acceptable (74-80) scores, respectively.
T-Mobile dominates the regional 5G Download Speed award table as it wins outright in 42 out of 44 regions analyzed, while sharing the award with Verizon in Maine and with both AT&T and Verizon in South Dakota. T-Mobile exceeded the 200 Mbps threshold in the District of Columbia where it hit 235.2 Mbps; our Verizon users in the capital experienced 180.4 Mbps, while our users on AT&T recorded their fastest 5G Download Speed score of 73.7 Mbps in Delaware. T-Mobile also wins 25 regional 5G Upload Speed awards outright while sharing a further 11 with Verizon — which is the sole winner in the remaining eight awards.
