This Carrier Has the Fastest NetworkAnd It Probably Isn’t Who You Think
Wireless carriers are constantly spending money to upgrade their networks.
Because they know that having the fastest and most reliable network is a great way to attract customers.
That’s why T-Mobile is likely rejoicing this month.
Because Internet speed tester, Ookla, recently said that T-Mobile has the fastest wireless speeds of any U.S. carrier.
The Ookla survey averaged 5 million speed tests together from different locations across the country.
And T-Mobile’s average LTE speeds were 19.62 Mbps, while second-place Verizon had 18.52 Mbps. Source: Ookla.
That may be a bit surprising, considering T-Mobile is only the nation’s third-largest carrier.
But T-Mobile has been working hard on its LTE connections over the past few years, and now reaches 290 million points-of-presence.
And the carrier is excelling in more than just network speed tests too.
J.D. Power just named T-Mobile the top carrier for customer service performance among full-service U.S. wireless providers.
In addition to that, the carrier is adding new customers like gangbusters.
In Q2 2015, T-Mobile added 2.1 million total net customers.
That marks the ninth consecutive quarter T-Mobile’s added more than 1 million customers in a quarter.
Of course, having the fastest network in the country isn’t the sole reason why users are flocking to T-Mobile.
But it certainly doesn’t hurt.
