The newest report from Ookla finds AT&T beating Verizon in common 4G speeds and T-Mobile blazing forward in 5G.
Ookla’s 4G “speed score” for AT&T is 41.23 with T-Mobile fairly far behind in second place with a rating of 33.69. The different two main operators, Sprint and Verizon, are clumped near T-Mobile with scores of 31.53 and 30.77 respectively.
All the suppliers now have excessive 4G availability scores. Sprint and Verizon lead with a joint 99% 4G availability, adopted by AT&T and T-Mobile with 97.8% and 97.5% respectively.
5G efficiency is the place issues get fascinating. Verizon is lightyears forward of rivals with a Speed Score of 870.50. AT&T manages second place – regardless of having a rating of simply 78.68 – whereas Sprint and T-Mobile take the ultimate spots with scores of 64.82 and 64.26 respectively.
Where the 5G efficiency outcomes are deceiving is that Verizon has a a lot smaller rollout than AT&T, and particularly T-Mobile.
Ookla notes that, thus far, Verizon has simply 39 deployments. For comparability, T-Mobile has 5,008 deployments. AT&T has 355 deployments.
