T‑Mobile Sweeps ALL Network Awards in Global Industry First

01 de agosto de 2017

Billions of real-world customer tests rank T-Mobile first for speed, responsiveness and LTE signal availability

Bellevue, Washington — August 2, 2017 — Wireless customers have spoken, and America has a new No.1 network. T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced its network has scored a clean sweep in the latest State of Mobile Networks report(only in English) from OpenSignal, placing no.1 in every category. It is the first such sweep for any major wireless provider anywhere in the world. In the report, more than five billion tests from actual wireless customers in the second quarter show that T-Mobile's network is not only fastest, but also most responsive, and T-Mobile customers get an LTE signal more often than customers of any other major wireless company do.

The OpenSignal report also confirmed that, since February, when Verizon and AT&T began widely offering unlimited data plans, the carriers' customers have continued to see a steady drop in network speeds, declining steadily every month. In a separate publicación de blog measuring peak network speeds for the same timeframe, OpenSignal found that T-Mobile customers experienced speeds closer to the top more often than Verizon customers on an everyday basis.

“Better matters. But BEST sure as hell matters more,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “I’ve always said, ‘Shut up and listen to your customers.’ Well, now, customers across all US wireless providers have spoken—through billions of their network experiences—and they’ve told us loud and clear that America’s Un-carrier has built America’s BEST unlimited network.”

In addition to the OpenSignal results, T-Mobile’s LTE network was also fastest for the 14th quarter in a row according to Ookla Speedtest.net data, which is based on millions of actual customer experiences.

"It's a clean sweep for the Un-carrier!" said Neville Ray, Chief Technology Officer for T-Mobile. "For the past several years, T-Mobile customers have been riding on America's fastest LTE network. But that wasn't good enough for us. Now T-Mobile's network is the fastest, the most responsive and has the most reliable LTE signal in the nation. That's what I'm talkin' about!"

 

 

Rather than basing results on the simulations used in older network testing methods, with scripted drive routes on only one phone model, OpenSignal gathers data directly from actual wireless customers who have downloaded the app onto their smartphones. Performance measurements are taken wherever customers happen to be, at home, at work, or on the go - indoors and out - resulting in a true representation of customers' wireless data experience.

Desde 2015, T-Mobile ha duplicado su cobertura LTE y ahora llega a más de 315 millones de personas. Para fin de año, el Un-carrier espera expandir la cobertura LTE a 321 millones de personas. Con su presentación de alcance LTE extendido de 700 MHz casi completa, este año T-Mobile planea ampliar aún más la cobertura LTE para sus clientes con el espectro de 600 MHz que acaba de adquirir.
