For what it’s worth, OpenSignal’s April 2021 report says T-Mobile has the fastest 5G speed — the testing firm says T-Mobile has an average 5G download speed of 71.3 Mbps. While that may not seem as fast as what you’d expect from 5G, it’s ahead of the averages for AT&T (54.9 Mbps) and Verizon (47.7 Mbps).
Is T-Mobile’s 5G really 5G?
With the largest, fastest and now most reliable 5G network, T-Mobile’s Extended Range 5G covers 287 million people across 1.6 million square miles – that’s nearly 2.5x the geographic coverage of AT&T and nearly 4x more than Verizon.
Is T-Mobile coverage better with 5G?
T-Mobile dominated the latest 5G report from Opensignal, scoring higher marks than rivals AT&T and Verizon across categories of reach, availability, and upload and download speeds.
Is T-Mobile 5G better than 4G?
4G speeds are based on the nationwide average of our last-round of LTE network speed tests. For 5G speeds, we’ve listed the results from Ookla’s testing during the fourth quarter of 2020.
5G speed: 5G vs. 4G download speeds compared.
|Average 5G download speed||4G|
|T-Mobile||71 Mbps||36.3 Mbps|
|Verizon||67.1 Mbps||53.3 Mbps|
Is T-Mobile 5G as good as Verizon?
However, T-mobile’s 5G network is currently the broadest in the U.S., covering around 40% of the country compared to Verizon’s 11%. While 5G is still being rolled out across the country, T-Mobile has an edge due to more coverage and faster speeds when comparing its 5G service to Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband.
Who really has the best 5G network?
In 2019, AT&T won our top award on the strength of its nationwide 4G LTE. In 2020, Verizon won because of its millimeter-wave 5G. Since then, all three major mobile networks have changed in huge ways.
Will there be a 6G network?
Now there’s a thing called 6G. Yep, even though 5G networks aren’t fully built up yet, wireless communication companies have already started looking ahead and thinking about the next mobile network to come. Technically, 6G doesn’t exist yet.
Why is my 5G internet so slow?
You’re Using the Wrong Spectrum Band
Wireless networks use two main frequency bands: 2.4 GHz (gigahertz) and 5 GHz. These frequency bands affect how far and how fast data can travel over WiFi. The 2.4 GHz band gives you slower speeds at a longer range, while the 5 GHz band gives you faster speeds at a shorter range.
Is 5G faster than fiber?
In short, 5G can deliver faster speeds, more quickly than fibre.
