T-Mobile’s 5G speeds demolished Verizon and AT&T in the third quarter

You know that Speedtest.net app you installed on your iPhone and Android handset? It tells you your data download and upload speed to make sure you’re getting the mobile data speeds promised by your wireless service provider. The application was downloaded from 100 million times on Android alone and is also available for iOS.

T-Mobile was the fastest wireless carrier in the United States during the third quarter

The app developer, Ookla, also uses the data generated by using the Speedtest.net app to determine which carriers are the fastest in certain markets. During the third trimester, Ookla says the fastest wireless service provider in the United States was T-Mobile with a median download speed of 116.14 Mbps. Verizon and AT&T battled it out for second place, with Verizon edging out AT&T with download speeds of 58.64 and 57.94 respectively.

A median score is where half of the results in a series scored higher and half scored lower. With that in mind, T-Mobile also had the fastest download speeds for Q3 with a median score of 10.91 Mbps. Verizon was second with a median download speed of 8.30 Mbps, followed by the 7.55 Mbps achieved by AT&T.
T-Mobile also had the highest state consistency score in the third quarter. Ookla defines this as the percentage of tests showing results of at least 5 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload speed. T-Mobile was able to produce these scores or better 84.4% of the time, compared to 79.6% of the time for Verizon and 79.4% of the time for AT&T.

T-Mobile (76.81), Verizon (73.55), and AT&T (70.47) finished 1-2-3 in that order for video. The 5G video was closer but the results were the same with T-Mobile scoring 81.50, slightly ahead of the 81.30 scored by Verizon. Both were well ahead of third-place AT&T by 73.48.

T-Mobile delivered the fastest 5G speeds during the quarter with a median download count of 193.06 Mbps, compared to 119.80 Mbps for Verizon and 81.22 Mbps for AT&T. During the same period, 69.2% of T-Mobile subscribers with a 5G-enabled phone had a 5G signal. That figure for AT&T was 59.2%, while Verizon customers in the same situation were only able to get a 5G signal 32% of the time.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max was the fastest phone in the US in Q3

According to Ookla, 5G consistency didn’t have a clear third-quarter winner, with Verizon and T-Mobile scoring 75.6% and 75.3%, respectively. AT&T, with a score of 69.6%, finished third.

Among the most popular devices, the new iPhone 14 Pro Max achieved the best median download and upload speeds of 147.42 Mbps and 17.07 Mbps respectively. The iPhone 14 Pro was next (142.57 Mbps down, 16.07 Mbps up). The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra (102.87 Mbps down, 11.67 Mbps up) came third.

Overall though, Samsung edged out Apple as the fastest manufacturer. Samsung’s third quarter median download data speed was 65.94 Mbps with a median data upload speed of 8.81 Mbps. This surpassed Apple’s third-quarter median download speed of 62.49 Mbps and median upload speed of 7.89 Mbps.

The five fastest 5G mobile chips in the US in Q3 were all made by Qualcomm

The five chipsets with the fastest 5G data speeds in Q3 were all made by Qualcomm. Topping the list in Q3 was the Snapdragon X65 5G modem with a median download speed of 145.11 Mbps and a median upload speed of 16.61 Mbps. The fastest application processor (AP) was the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 with a median download speed of 123.67 Mbps and a median upload speed of 12.93 Mbps. In third place was the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 AP with median upload and download speeds of 98.04 Mbps and 11.16 Mbps respectively.

Do you live in one of the states with the fastest data speeds? The state with the fastest wireless service during the third quarter was New Jersey (median download speed of 81.47 Mbps, median upload speed of 11.59 Mbps). The rest of the major states include:

  • Illinois (80.43 Mbps median download, 9.6 Mbps median upload).
  • District of Columbia (79.94 Mbps, 10.90 Mbps).
  • New York (79.83Mbps 12.26Mbps).
  • Minnesota (79.59 Mbps, 8.07 Mbps).

  • Ohio (69.07Mbps, 7.71Mbps)
T-Mobile was the fastest wireless service provider in each of the top ten states during the third quarter. The carrier’s acquisition of Sprint has allowed it to take possession of Sprint’s mid-range 2.5 GHz spectrum, helping it reach 260 million Americans this year and 300 million next year with its ultra-fast 5G signals. ability. The latter can provide data download speeds up to 10 times faster than LTE.

“We built our nationwide 5G network to give customers better connectivity and an experience they can always rely on,” said Neville Ray, president of technology at T-Mobile. “T-Mobile has proven time and time again the exceptional benefits of our national 5G network in terms of speed, reliability and coverage, and these reports are just another example of the work we do to deliver the best network experience in the world. country – and we’re not slowing down.”
