Well, coming second, but that's still pretty good!
Scroll down to 'Global LTE Speed Comparison'
Here's a preview:
More detailed info on the actual graph, which is somewhat interactive.
pretty good to see. Didnt know opensignal did reports.
their statistics app statistics are nice.
i blocked the app from using background data awhile back, after it pushed a fair portion of my data plan in a few mins driving along the road...
Dont seem to have the screenshot to go with it, but yeah.. LTE speeds arent bad at all, Even in very crowded situations..
Personally, i am that happy with the responsiveness of LTE, that often i wont bother with wifi when im out and just use my data - Sure that costs me a little more in the long run, but i end up with a consistent session pretty-much all day that way.
i'm Prominently a Rural user with no 4G at home, so 4G only really covers when im at work or out and about but thought it might be interesting to show my personal statistics - Under 1% time spent with No coverage at all there and next no drops back any further than 3G which is really good to see too.
being a bit of a meterwatcher, ild be interested if it tracked time i spent on HSPAP etc for curiosity.
Any comments made are personal opinion and do not reflect directly on the position my current or past employers may have.
Every time I go to the US to tech conferences the issue of internet speeds and mobile networks always seems to pop up either chatting to vendors or day to day conversations. Most simply struggle to belive that it's possible to get a real world speed of 140/40Mbps over a mobile network, rates that are certainly possible here on our networks. These peak speeds will increase signiifcantly soon on VF who are apparently not far away from tri carrier aggregation. They get excited when they can get 10Mbps on their terrible mobile networks!
Where can I sign up for higher prices and lower speeds?
NonprayingMantis: Presumably it's because our carriers have invested a lot more per capita than in the us and other countires.
The upside is better speeds.
The downside is higher prices to cover the extra costs.
Personally, I prefer to have higher prices with better speeds, but some people would prefer the opposite.
Our pricing is pretty competitive with most US offerings now and many users would pay less than what they would in the US for similar voice and data offerings. Their family plans (when you start offering multiple lines) can be slightly better value though.
It's countries like Australia that have the cheap offerings these days though, not the US.
Hmm in Dunedin, on
Spark actually Skinny, that's not the case. 4G doesn't move at all. 3G is great. So I only use 3G now. Sorry not sure about signal quality but the iphone shows minumum 4 bars when I complain.
Interesting. That's not specific to Skinny; I just did a test in Whakatane and got 32 Mb/s. Your local tower may be overloaded; have you tried re-testing in a different part of the city?
I would be interested to see the score when rural connections are factored in.
(the practice of real science, engineering and management)
I remember doing a speedtest around mid last year on my phone (Spark) and I got 125/36. This was in Lincoln, just outside of Christchurch.
