Y de repente hay 5G en toda la ciudad; vale la pena echarle un vistazo a la tarjeta de red Telekom

Fast mobile internet: a black eye for Telefónica (O2) according to the latest study

And suddenly there is 5G throughout the city;  the Telekom network card is worth a look

According to a new study, network operators were able to make mobile internet in German cities basically faster, but there is a loser in this comparison.

According to a new study, network operators were able to make mobile internet in German cities basically faster, but there is a loser in this comparison. Telefónica has always lagged behind, mobile Internet is not at the level of Vodafone and Telekom for O2 customers. Which is fine, because the price differences underline it. However, the gap between them has recently widened again, says the Umlaut company responsible for the measurements, according to Handelsblatt.

Telekom’s mobile phone customers were recently able to surf at an average of over 91 Mbit / s, while the previous year the average was still 73 Mbit / s. Vodafone also improved significantly from 47 to 68 Mbit / s. Telefónica could take a leap, but it is much smaller. Instead of an average of 30, Telefónica customers were able to reach 37 Mbit / s in the current year.

Telefónica questioned this study, according to its own measurements it would be 40 Mbit / s, in larger cities the average would have to be significantly higher. However, the LTE locations alone show that Telekom and Vodafone can do more. Telekom currently operates 29,300 LTE stations, 19,000 with Vodafone and 15,000 with Telefónica. All three network operators are expanding vigorously.

Speed ​​is not everything

For me, as a user, there is no difference with the smartphone if only 25 Mbit / s or 90 Mbit / s arrive. Both are easy enough even for 4K streams on Netflix and Co. The deciding factor is rather network availability and coverage, as well as connection latency. Anyone browsing on the go with a flat rate and using PC hotspots may, however, be more interested in speed.

I don’t even use my landline to measure if the reserved speed is available if everything works as usual.
