For the very first time Opensignal is providing a comprehensive comparison of mobile network experience globally at the operator-level across five key measures of mobile network experience.
Opensignal took a look at the U.K. broadband market and analyzed our users’ real-world experience when they connected using a selection of the country’s major Internet Service Providers (ISPs).
In Opensignal’s latest 5G analysis we found all ten operators saw much faster speeds for their users on 5G compared with 4G, with speeds between 18.4 times and 1.7 times faster on 5G. Understanding the extent to which 5G improves the mobile experience is critical both for consumers considering upgrading to 5G and also for the mobile industry that’s planning how quickly to invest in 5G.
Opensignal’s latest analysis demonstrates that 5G greatly improves the real-world speeds that users experience. And, even more significantly, 5G offers faster average download speeds than Wifi in seven out of eight leading 5G countries.
Globally, operators report mobile data use is increasing dramatically but Opensignal’s analytics demonstrate that despite these challenges the mobile experience is holding up well. Opensignal has seen only relatively small changes in users’ 4G Download Speeds in some countries, and none at all in other countries.
EE is closing in on 95% 4G Availability. The operator has extended its lead in terms of Download Speed Experience and still dominates our award table. Meanwhile, Vodafone has retained the Voice App Experience Award and all four operators have made great strides in terms of Video Experience.
