While companies like RootMetrics, OpenSignal, and Ookla have already analyzed the key distinctions between Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile’s 5G and 4G LTE networks more times than this writer can count on the fingers of both hands this year alone, the latest in-depth report based on speed measurements conducted in the first half of 2020 does something differently.
Big doesn’t necessarily mean fast
In case you’re wondering, Philadelphia was the other city besides Los Angeles where anyone could get access to 5G… at the right time and in the right place, with impressive results delivered primarily by AT&T and Verizon for a change. Philly is the rare combination of big and fast, ranking fifth in population and second in aggregate speeds, trailing only Baltimore from the latter standpoint and surpassing Cincinnati, Dayton, Fayetteville, Minneapolis, Cleveland, and Seattle among many others.
America’s top tech cities are not all remarkably fast either
While Seattle and Washington, DC performed pretty well to end up neck and neck at the top of the 10 “tech cities” list assessed by RootMetrics with 47.4 and 46.2 Mbps aggregate median download speeds respectively, we can’t say the same about San Jose, San Francisco, Provo, and especially Austin.
