Verizon vs T-Mobile vs AT&T: new 5G speed tests break 100 Mbps barrier for the first time
There are a lot of big and small mobile analytics and market research firms around that like to regularly evaluate and rank the top three US wireless service providers based on different aspects of the network experience and relying on different measures of assessing overall performance, but when it comes to the reliability and independence of the data collected nationwide, Opensignal is pretty much impossible to beat.
All of the 5G speed and availability trophies are colored in magenta
Just because the “Un-carrier” has made a little less noise than usual in the last few months as far as 5G coverage expansions and speed upgrades are concerned, that doesn’t mean the rollouts and improvements have slowed down in any substantial way.
Verizon is a triple crown winner too
While three is smaller than four, Verizon’s October 2021 awards tally does at least surpass the big zero listed in AT&T’s W column. Big Red can certainly be happy about winning the 5G video experience title outright this time around after sharing the laurels with Ma Bell back in July while also retaining its 5G games and 5G voice app experience trophies.
Worse still, the nation’s largest wireless service provider by the number of customers is unable to take home any individual 5G availability, reach, or download speed gold ribbons awarded in 35 “leading” 5G states, as well as the Washington, D.C. capital.
In addition to falling from first to third (!!!) place in 5G video experience, AT&T registered huge overall 5G availability and 5G reach declines… for some mysterious reason while slightly improving its 5G upload speed figure and slightly depreciating in the same 5G download speed category where T-Mobile gained a whopping 31.2 Mbps in a single quarter. Now that’s a bad look for Ma Bell!
