Australia, Japan improve LTE speeds in OpenSignal survey

Wednesday 2 April 2014 | 13:16 CET | News
Only about a quarter of existing LTE networks achieve good coverage as well as fast speeds, suggesting work still needs to be done to convince customers to adopt 4G, according to the latest survey by OpenSignal. Its research is based on feedback from 6 million LTE users of its app, measuring their experience with download speeds and the time spent on LTE networks in order to determine availability of LTE networks. According to the figures from the second half of 2013, Australia had the highest download speeds at an average 24.5 Mbps, improving strongly from 17.5 Mbps in the previous survey.
