T-Mobile Chief Technology Officer Neville Ray has revealed the LTE network speed of AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile at Big Game.
The LTE speed comparison is based speedtest data from Speedtest at the stadium during the game time.
T-Mobile has delivered 39.5 Mbps and AT&T 38.4 Mbps lTE speed.
Verizon, which has invested $70 million to prepare its LTE network for the Big Game, has offered 17.9 Mbps speed against Sprint’s 38.1 Mbps.
T-Mobile customers spent 5 times more on data streaming, surfing on Facebook and Instagram as compared with Big Game last year. They used 29 percent of data for social media apps, including 166,700 Instagram posts, and over 119,250 snaps from Snapchat. Another 29 percent of data was used for video.
T-Mobile LTE now covers over 304 million Americans, covering roughly 97% of the people Verizon covers. Last year, T-Mobile more than doubled the footprint of LTE network. It added over 1 million square miles and covered almost 100 million more Americans than in 2014.
Extended Range LTE, available in over 300 metro areas, carries signals 2x farther from the tower and 4x deeper into buildings than before.
Over the past two years, over 5 million Verizon customers and over 6 million AT&T customers switched to T-Mobile’s network.
Ookla test results show T-Mobile has delivered America’s Fastest Mobile Network for the past two years.
FCC network test results show that T-Mobile is delivering the fastest 4G LTE network in the nation.
OpenSignal research shows we offer the fastest LTE network on top of “closing the gap with Verizon” in overall LTE coverage.
T-Mobile CTO alleges that the RootMetrics data used in Verizon’s colorful balls ad is based on test results that are up to a year old, and skews reality because they chose to ignore new T-Mobile coverage added last year.
“RootMetrics chose to disable Voice over LTE (VoLTE) which handles over 40 percent of our customers’ calls today. RootMetrics chose to turn off technologies that come on all new T-Mobile phones,” said Neville Ray.
