A new wireless buzzword is showing up on store shelves, TV ads, and billboards: LTE, or Long-Term Evolution. Our collection of facts about this next generation of wireless tech will keep you ahead of the curve.
For the second year in a row, AT&T's LTE service proves to be the fastest in our nationwide study, while T-Mobile LTE is spreading rapidly and performing well. Verizon LTE is reasonably quick and available everywhere, while Sprint lacks speed in urban centers.
On the strength of high speeds in East Coast cities, T-Mobile 3G showed the highest 20-city average in our study, but network performance was hardly consistent nationwide. Sprint and Verizon averaged well less than 1 mbps for downloads.
We performed more than 18,000 tests of the major wireless services in 20 U.S. cities. Our goal? To name the nation's wireless-network winners and losers.
Our approach to testing wireless service has always been to closely replicate how people use wireless service in the real world, and then measure how well it really works. That’s why we do the testing ourselves.
