Singapore leads the world in mobile download speeds

Singapore leads the world in mobile download speeds”

On the other hand, India, despite having a good penetration percent is the last in 77 countries when it comes to 4G speeds.

All four 4G providers (EE, 3, O2 and Vodafone) improved their availability rate when compared with the start of the year.

In terms of general 4G LTE availability, the U.S.is doing much better, placing fifth with a coverage of almost 87 percent.

"In our latest global report, OpenSignal parsed more than 50 billion measurements worldwide to see how 77 countries stacked up in 4G performance". This approach completely eliminates the impact of dead zones with no coverage but also allows areas covered with 4G LTE by only some wireless carriers to reduce the overall score in an attempt to serve as a more reliable indicator of how often do consumers in any given country actually have access to a high-speed mobile connection.

India's LTE Network speeds and footprint are particularly important as it is one of the biggest markets for cellular in the world.

These speeds were the worst in the world. OpenSignal says it tracks the availability not by geographic coverage but by the proportion of time users have access to a given network. At an average of 19.89Mbps South Africa's LTE speeds are not only the fastest in Africa but also well above the global average of 16.6Mbps.

In the June report, OpenSignal found that 14 countries had an average LTE network speed of 30 Mbps or higher and the November report sees 13.

The report adds no country has yet broken through the 50 Mbps barrier for average 4G download speeds, though South Korea and Singapore are at 45.9 Mbps and 46.6 Mbps, respectively.

Of the 4G service providers in the UK, OpenSignal revealed EE leads the way in download speed (29Mbps) and availability (78%).

As pointed out in OpenSignal's October report, Jio had the lowest 4G speed among incumbents. Its average 4G speed was calculated at 5.8Mbps; however, Jio was labelled as the 'operator to beat.' While Airtel had an average LTE download speed of 9.2 Mbps and 3G downloads of 3.6 Mbps.

"While speeds may be falling off in the top half of our table, they're increasing in the bottom half". As you can imagine the gap between the countries with the most LTE availability and those with the least is fairly wide.
