Top AT&T story from FierceWireless: AT&T, T-Mobile outshine Verizon in Q2 mobile performance – Ookla

From FierceWireless:

Both AT&T and T-Mobile nabbed bragging rights in Q2 mobile performance, according to new analysis by Ookla. AT&T’s 4G LTE network ranked fastest and most consistent, while T-Mobile’s 5G coverage dwarfed that of its two competitors.

Each put out press releases boasting their respective wins, as rival Verizon fell behind both AT&T and T-Mobile in most categories. Notably that includes Ookla’s 5G Capable Speed Score, which measures tests on 5G-capable devices but also accounts for connections over LTE and older technologies.

Ookla’s Q2 results for mobile and fixed broadband are based on 85.1 million consumer-initiated Speedtests from over 1.6 million unique user devices. Speed Scores are calculated using each provider’s download and upload speeds to give an overall network performance speed rank, with the latter accounting for 10% and 90% attributed to download. Scores are from tests in competitive geographies and on devices with modern chipsets.

According to Ookla, as of July 5, there were 5,164 cities with commercial 5G deployments. Of those 5,013 were from T-Mobile, which is primarily using low-band 600 MHz spectrum for its nationwide 5G deployment. Like T-Mobile, AT&T is also largely focused on low-band, refarming existing 850 MHz spectrum. According to the report, AT&T had just 237 5G deployments, followed by Verizon with only 39.
