Now for the first time, Opensignal ranks the world's 5G operators using our leading measures of the real-world mobile network experience.
Our analysis shows that strong 4G network foundations still remain essential for 5G deployment in its early stages. 4G continues to boost the 5G experience even for a market like South Korea, hailed as one of the 5G frontrunners. Part of the reason for the 5G success story of Korea’s operators is their use of 4G spectrum and having an excellent 4G network that helps to boost 5G download speeds.
