Opensignal takes its first look at the 5G experience in U.S. cities in the first of a new series of insights into 5G in the U.S.
Opensignal has analyzed our 5G smartphone users' average mobile data consumption in six leading 5G countries and found that in the month of September 2020, on average, they consumed up to 2.7 times more mobile data compared to 4G 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.
Users on current 5G brands have seen 5G average download speeds between 1.6 and 1.9 times faster than 4G in the U.S. Apple and Google are the last two major U.S. smartphone brands to launch 5G models. The first 5G iPhones will reignite the race to 5G because the iPhone represents about half of the US market.
T-Mobile and Verizon each won three Opensignal awards.
