Verizon, T-Mobile duke it out in latest OpenSignal report

T-Mobile CEO John Legere might have felt even more animated and bubbly than usual over the last few days. Last week, a You Gov poll found that more T-Mobile customers were satisfied with their service than customers on Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. Then, earlier this week, data from the Ookla Speedtest app found that T-Mobile had the fastest 4G LTE download speed for the 20th consecutive quarter.

For the period from October through December 2018, T-Mobile averaged a download speed of 33.4Mbps, topping Verizon's average speed of 32.1Mbps. AT&T finished third with an average speed of 30.6Mbps with Sprint's 27.7Mbps average bringing up the rear.

But today, OpenSignal issued its latest State of Mobile Networks report. While Verizon and T-Mobile battled for the top spot in nearly every category, T-Mobile edged out Verizon for the fastest download speed by a very close margin. T-Mobile averaged 21.1Mbps versus 20.9Mbps for Big Red. However, that figure includes both 4G LTE and 3G speeds. Looking at 4G download speeds alone, Verizon (22Mbps) slipped past T-Mobile (21.9Mbps). It was T-Mobile's edge in 3G speeds (3.7Mbps compared to .8Mbps for Verizon) that allowed T-Mobile to come out on top overall. And even then, OpenSignal called it a draw.

Meanwhile, based on the OpenSignal app and the crowdsourced data that it generates, OpenSignal awarded wins to Verizon for 4G availability, Video experience, and Upload speed. AT&T picked up the win in Latency. OpenSignal says that Verizon and T-Mobile should continue to battle each other for the top spots in the near future.

"For the last several reports, OpenSignal has become accustomed to handing T-Mobile accolades as the operator has skyrocketed up our metric rankings. But Verizon has made a comeback in the last six months. Boosted speeds, extended LTE reach and improved video quality have sent Verizon to the top of most of our metric categories and has left Verizon and T-Mobile duking it out for our Download Speed Experience award. Make no mistake, T-Mobile isn't down for the count. In every metric Verizon won, T-Mobile is a very close second in our analysis, and will likely contest each of Verizon's current wins in our future U.S. reports."-OpenSignal

been with VZ since 2013 which has been the best upgrade from Sprint

T-Mobile has been pulling weight these few recent years, that's commendable

I was with Sprint from 2003-2016. I left and went to Verizon and I've been happy ever since. I know people complained about Sprint but I was in the A mostly and traveled to other major cities and never had a problem. I use to constantly do speed test and was happy to see 20-35mbs. I dropped calls here and there but nothing too crazy. I guess you dnt appreciate the good sh*t until you have the good sh*t. Since I've been on Verizon i haven't had 1 drop call and I avg 60-110mbs with Verizon. The quality aint even close! And idk if Sprint fixed there dumbass LTE but one thing I use to like with Sprint is that you can surf and talk on the phone. But Sprint dumbass changed their frequency and you couldn't do it anymore. Well Verizon can definitely talk and surf the internet which is a HUGE W for me!

Thats because the iPhone X for AT&T and T-Mobile has a sh*tty Intel modem, that is leagues behind the qualcomm chips in the Verizon & Sprint iPhone X models

I've had T-mobile back si ce they were Voicestrem and they've always been great. Now that they're making money and become larger their coverage is even better. Plus their prices and perks are far superior. I stream music and movies and it doesn't count against my data.

If you got it from Apple then your phone is unlocked and most likely the Qualcomm chip.

Just go to Settings>General>About and look at your model. If it's A1901 then you got fu*ked like me. lol
