Sunrise shows fastest 4G network in Open Signal tests

Wednesday 24 May 2017 | 14:56 CET | News
Sunrise offers the fastest LTE speeds in Switzerland and is tied with Swisscom for the best 4G availability, according to Open Signal's first test of Swiss mobile networks. OpenSignal users clocked up average download speeds of 35.3 Mbps on the Sunrise network during the tests conducted in February-April. That was 12 Mbps faster than its nearest rival Salt (23.3 Mbps) and nearly 15 Mbps more than Swisscom (20.7 Mbps). However all three operators were doing better than the researcher's global average of 17.4 Mbps over LTE networks.
