AT&T Has The Fastest 4G Network, No Matter What Verizon Tells You [Report]


A study was conducted recently in the U.S. to determine which was the fastest 4G LTE network. The results showed that AT&T’s 4G LTE network was the fastest in the whole country – even faster than Verizon’s, which has been claiming to be the fastest for some time now.

There are a countless number of adverts published by Verizon, claiming it has the fastest 4G LTE network in the U.S. However, the results of this study contradict those claims. The question now is, has Verizon been lying to us all along, or could this study be inaccurate?

It appears that Verizon has been lying to us; another study was carried out, shortly after this one, which came to the same conclusion: AT&T is officially the fastest 4G LTE network in the U.S.

OpenSignal and TechHive tested internet speeds on: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint, using two devices. An iPhone 4S was used to test 3G speeds (HSPA+), and a Samsung Galaxy Note II was used to test 4G LTE speeds.

As you can see from the results table at the top of the page, AT&T’s overall network total throughput comes in at around 47% (est.) better than Verizon’s. Sprint’s overall network total throughput comes in at around 30% (est.) of AT&T’s total throughput. This clearly shows that in terms of speed and connectivity to the internet, AT&T rules.

It will be interesting to see how Verizon responds to this study, and also its course of action with regards to the thousands of adverts it currently has published.
