New Zealand takes global silver for LTE speed
Posted on 8-Feb-2016 19:46 by Bill Bennett. | Tags Filed under: News.


New Zealand’s mobile network faster than UK, US and Australia. 

New Zealand has the world’s second fastest LTE phone downloads. Only Singapore has better mobile data speeds. Australia comes in at number eight in the list while the UK and USA are miles behind.

The statistics come from a network monitoring app called OpenSignal. The maker of OpenSingal says average LTE speeds in New Zealand are 29 Mbps. That’s a long way behind Singapore on 37 Mbps, but well in front of Australia where speeds average 24 Mbps.

OpenSignal breaks down the numbers by carrier. Vodafone has an average speed of 32 Mbps. Spark weighs in a 28 Mbps and 2degrees is close behind on 27 Mbps.

New Zealand is now also pulling ahead of Australia for average fixed-line broadband speeds. We so often compare ourselves unfavourably against our nearest neighbour, now we have something tangible to be pleased about. For all the angst over regulation, our market rules seem to be working too everyone’s advantage.
