As more EMEA operators deploy higher speed 5G in more locations we will see the 5G experience improve significantly. The wide differences in 5G experience indicate how much there is still to do. But already, 5G download speeds are considerably faster than 4G, and 5G offers an improved mobile video streaming experience.
Opensignal has analyzed 30 countries in Europe and 18 in the Middle East and Africa in our first mobile Group Video Calling Experience report for the MENA region. In Europe, the Netherlands turned out to be the unchallenged winner, with an astounding score of 92.4 points.
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.
Voice App Experience and Games Experience had been Etisalat’s Achilles’ heel in its mobile experience for a while.
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.
5G is still near the beginning of its decade-long era. No mobile technology stands still, so we must continue to analyze the real-world experience and see how it changes and improves.
Both our Etisalat and du users have seen impressive increases in their average overall download speeds.
