Three 5G battles, one clear champion
This is already a pretty worrying statistic for the nation’s largest wireless service provider, but the situation is only going to get worse. verizon Looking at the 5G availability and 5G speed sections of the latest RootMetrics survey:
T-mobile also holds verizon AT&T is tied for 69 trophies in the 5G download speed category, but this number is actually much lower than the 85 gold ribbons it earned in the first six months of last year. is.both verizon While it’s clear that AT&T has succeeded in significantly increasing 5G speeds in many areas with the help of recently acquired and deployed C-band spectrum, We will need many more advances in the future to hope to do so. same league as T-mobile…at some point.
And the overall winner is…

Magenta also has a lot to worry about when it comes to overall metro area performance. verizon In fact, we are leading in this space thanks to the impressive combination of an unparalleled 4G foundation and a rapidly improving 5G layer on top.AT&T managed to narrowly win at the state level. verizon 249-229 awards T-mobile The number of trophies won was only 76, which is not a huge number by any means.

Of course, both of these numbers remain far behind Magenta’s average speed of 250 Mbps, but the average speed itself is an increase from his 213.2 Mbps in the first half of 2023.
