Mobile users are all too familiar with the situation of having a good mobile signal but with a connection that is not good enough to stream video reliably, browse the web, share photos, or do whatever else with their phone. In Opensignal’s new analysis we quantify the level of experience which mobile users are able to rely upon across 20 international markets.
The 5G mobile experience continues to change as more smartphone users embrace 5G and operators expand their 5G networks. South Korea and Taiwan are vying for the leading 5G experience but there is lot of movement across the APAC region.
Opensignal looked at 21 markets in our first Group Video Calling Experience analysis in the APAC region. Our users experienced the most seamless video conferencing on mobile devices in Japan and Singapore.
Cities have a significantly better 5G experience than the national 5G results. For example, users in the city of Jeonju in South Korea have a 5G Download Speed of 415.6 Mbps which is 15% faster than South Korea's overall result.
Last year, to celebrate Opensignal’s 10th anniversary, we ranked the world's operators using our leading measures of the real-world mobile network experience. It was so well received that we’ve chosen to publish the awards again.
It’s clear from the many different potential ways to measure users’ experience and mobile networks that there is no single correct way to measure the extent of a mobile network. Opensignal’s two different measures — 5G Availability and 5G Reach — represent the network experience of users.
Across these 15 countries analyzed, users see 5G download speeds that are 5 to 6 times faster than 4G. In every country 5G is much faster than 4G.
