Less than a week after Opensignal ranked (for the umpteenth time) T-Mobile ahead of Verizon and AT&T in both 5G performance and overall network experience based on an extensive new set of nationwide tests, Ookla is… essentially doing the same in its latest in-depth US market report.The company behind the hugely popular Speedtest tool obviously performed its own rigorous measurements of various key network indicators across the nation during Q2 2022, concluding in a nutshell that the “Un-carrier” is better than the competition at… almost everything.
Verizon and AT&T can’t touch T-Mobile… again
5G video performance and 5G consistency are the only sections of this research where T-Mo doesn’t technically claim an outright victory, “statistically” tying with Verizon for first place, which also means the second-largest US wireless service provider is in literally no way inferior to its arch-rivals, at least according to these particular tests.
Some of T-Mo’s wins are obviously more impressive than others, with the gap between the gold medalist and Big Red’s silver placement in the median 5G download speed category looking simply staggering, at nearly 74 Mbps. To be perfectly clear, the advantage held by Magenta over its “closest” competitor is higher than AT&T’s actual result, and Verizon and AT&T are not playing in the same league as the nationwide champion in overall speeds either.
Galaxy S22 Ultra users in Tampa have everything going for them
The new silver medalist was actually ranked third between January and March, behind the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which has since dropped to fourth place, being edged out by the Galaxy S22+ while still (narrowly) beating the iPhone 13 Pro.
Naturally, your specific download figures will depend on your carrier and location as much (if not more so) than your phone, with the geographic speed charts dominated by the District of Columbia, Minnesota, and New York as far as states go and Tampa, Florida, Arlington, Texas, and St. Paul, Minnesota in terms of the nation’s 100 most populous cities.
Notably, T-Mobile happens to be the fastest overall wireless service provider in no less than 75 of those 100 cities, as well as a whopping 45 states, which means that speed junkies have the best chance of getting satisfaction from the “Un-carrier”. ” almost anywhere in the US… where they can buy the flagship Galaxy.
