Telcel leapfrogs AT&T in Mexico 4G coverage - study

Friday 13 October 2017 | 11:07 CET | News
Telcel, the mobile unit of America Movil, has topped Mexico's 4G coverage ranking in the latest mobile network report published by OpenSignal. The operator reclaimed its lead in the 4G availability metric six months after falling behind AT&T, with users able to latch onto its LTE signal 76.4 percent of the time compared to an AT&T 4G signal 75.0 percent of the time and a Movistar one 65.4 percent of the time. However, AT&T and Telcel remained effectively deadlocked for LTE speed, with AT&T users seeing 22.8 Mbps LTE download speeds compared to an average of 23.5 Mbps for Telcel.
