Fastest Mobile Networks 2020 Explained

by birtanpublished on October 5, 2020

Hi i'm sasha segan from pcmag.com here in the bronx halfway through our new york city fastest mobile networks testing for 2020. i'm here to show you how we test 4g and 5g networks we've hired people in 25 major u.s cities to drive around their cities or nearby cities shepherding phones testing the 4g and 5g networks we stop in at least 12 places per city and we also collect data as we're on the roads i've got here three 4g phones

One from each of the major us carriers and three 5g phones one from each of the major us carriers the 4g phones are generally the galaxy s10 series and the 5g phones are the galaxy s20 series they're velcroed to wooden boards to keep them stable on the drive as you can see on the back i've labeled what carrier each phone is on but i don't necessarily see that while we're driving

We run software from our friends at ucla speed test which runs a speed test every two minutes checking the speed at this location here for instance are the speeds for att 4g here at arthur avenue in the bronx you can see this is our atnt 4g phone and here are the speeds marching down the screen the 4g and 5g phones don't test at the same time they're offset by a minute so that the two tests don't collide on the network

Here's our at t 5g phone and here's our atnt 5g speeds here at arthur avenue in the bronx now we summarized together all of the speeds from a given location and then average out the locations throughout the city to get our overall city speed you can see here that not all of the 5g phones are always in 5g mode especially the verizon phone which has very little 5g coverage that's also part of why we offset the test by a minute between the 4g

Group and the 5g group so you can see here that verizon 4g speeds here at arthur avenue are actually quite good we also have some diagnostic information that we use in case things go wrong we chose the galaxy s20 to test 5g because at the time of our tests they were the only phones in the us which could handle all the layers of 5g low middle and high vans i'm still on the road so i don't know what the fastest mobile network in the us is yet

You can find out though by going to pcmag.com and looking for fastest mobile networks
