After releasing countless reports aimed at evaluating the 5G and overall mobile network user experience at the national level in the last 18 months or so, OpenSignal is shifting its focus for the “first installment in a new series of insights into the current status of 5G in America.”
Five cities, five clear wins for Verizon
Unsurprisingly, OpenSignal’s latest “download speed experience” assessment yields the same exact conclusion across all the five areas surveyed in the aforementioned five-month timeframe. If you’re lucky enough to live in downtown Atlanta, Houston, LA, NYC, or DC and own a compatible device, there’s absolutely no question which of the top three carriers is right for you.
T-Mobile is the 5G upload champion, also making great download progress
Meanwhile, it’s definitely interesting to point out that Verizon’s clear 5G download speed advantage doesn’t translate into a similar 5G upload speed dominance across the five US cities’ downtown areas evaluated by OpenSignal.
