• OpenSignal’s State of LTE Report – Global Data for February, 2018



    OpenSignal has just released a new report on LTE networks around the world. Data was gathered in Q4 of 2017 but was just published this week, using more than 50 billion measurements from some 3.8 million smartphones and tablets in 88 countries. Notably absent is any data from the People's Republic of China. Anyway, you probably want to know which of the included countries has the fastest download speeds, so here are the top ten, plus a few more:

    01. Singapore - 44.31 Mbps
    02. Netherlands - 42.12
    03. Norway - 41.20
    04. South Korea - 40.44
    05. Hungary - 39.18
    06. Belgium - 36.13
    07. Australia - 36.08
    08. New Zealand - 33.52

    41. United Kingdom - 23.11
    62. USA - 16.31
    88. India - 6.07

    According to OpenSignal's analysis, global LTE speeds seem to have plateaued. The bigger story is improved LTE availability, so here are those rankings:

    01. South Korea - 97.49% availability
    02. Japan - 94.70%
    03. Norway - 92.16%

      I would be happy to get India's 6 Mbps consistently. As it is, I get 0.5 to 3 most of the time.

      I will speculate that those figures are heavily skewed by major metropolitan areas. It would be interesting and useful to know what the average speeds are by square mile of occupied territory.
