T-Mobile Tops Most Recent Ookla Speed Test

tmobile-ookla-speed-test
Contrary to the results of the recently conducted speed test by Wirefly, T-Mobile has shown tremendous speeds according to another test.

Ookla, a global company that runs internet testing and analysis, has recently revealed the results of its most recent speed test. The results of this test show a surprising report since T-Mobile earned the third spot on the recent overall speed test reported by Wirefly.

Based on Ookla's report, T-Mobile gained the top spot for speed tests throughout Q1 2018. During this quarter, T-Mo produced an average LTE download speed of 32.1Mbps and an average LTE upload speed of 12Mbps. With this streak, the wireless carrier has marked its 17th consecutive quarter as the winner of Ookla's speed tests for the fastest 4G LTE network in the country.

Not one to miss out on this achievement, T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray sent out a tweet pointing out that they have improved their LTE download speed by 30 percent year after year.

The wireless carrier to follow T-Mobile on this speed test is Verizon, which produced an average LTE download speed of 29.7Mbps and an average LTE upload speed of 9.8Mbps. The third spot went to AT&T with a 25.8Mbps average LTE download speed and 7.9Mbps average LTE upload speed. The last spot went to Sprint, which produced a 23.8Mbps average LTE download speed and 3.3Mbps average LTE upload speed.

Going back to Wirefly's recently conducted speed tests, the top spot went to Verizon with its 20.44Mbps average download speed. AT&T followed in second with its 19.11Mbps average download speed. The third spot went to T-Mobile with its 18.08Mbps average download speed. Sprint took the fourth spot with its 15.60Mbps average download speed.


Which speed test results do you think has more accurate results?

  2. most of my friends and familys experience including myself support ooklas test... especially since ookla is THE number one and most popular speed test on the planet period. nobody knows what a wire fly even is? but at least wire fly can justify Verizon's triple rates compared to tmobile for you and that's a good thing i guess?

  3. T-Mobile has good speed where data is available, in other words: Where the app works.

  4. We all know Tmo has "special relations" with ookla in the past, so these (fabricated) results don't surprise. I'm with wirefly, even though I'm not a Verizon fan.

      Do you have proof of this? It would be funny if it's documented somewhere, because this is exactly what John Legere has said or at least insinuated about Verizon and RootMetrics. Shockingly enough, he went quiet when RootMetrics gave T-Mobile the best rating in one of its recent tests.

  5. Ookla reflects correctly for the North East. Have checked TMobile, Vzw, Att simultaneously

  6. my experience supports ookla. verizon network ca not handle al the traffic that is on it. the newer t-mobile network does not have that problem. even the gsm non-lte networks are much, much faster than sprint or verizon. since, lte is a form of gsm, ven lte on sprint and verizon require a sim card, then as soon as they go all lte cdma willdie a long overdue death.

  7. T-Mobile has not improved in my area. Last year T-Mobile was clearly the fastest at around 50 Mbps. This year T-Mobile has slowed to around 18 Mbps, so ATT is now faster at around 19 Mbps. Sprint runs at about 14 Mbps. These speeds are when the network is not congested. All three slow way down on the weekends. I have never used Verizon because it is too expensive.

    1. Thanks. My fault for assuming a quid pro quo (financial) relationship.

  9. I have Verizon service through Red Pocket. My speedtest dot net results were 74.3 Mbps down and 22.9 Mbps up with a ping of 19ms and a jitter of 6ms. As I recall that was while I was connected to band 4.

  10. It all depends on your service area, and Verizon's consistent reliability everywhere trumps T-mobile's outdoor speeds only in heavily covered areas.

  11. The results are vary.Right now I'm on Page Plus(verizon cdma).The best download speed I could get is over 100Mbps indoor with LTE_CA at 5AM.

    But during 5PM-11PM the speed are really bad.Only 1-2Mbps indoor and 6-10Mbps open field.

  12. Ookla is crowdsourced, right? That methodology lends itself to confirmation bias: if you (a customer of a wireless carrier) don't have signal somewhere, are you really going to run a speed test?

    And would the speed test even record a zero (no coverage) result? How would that get measured against another carrier that provides coverage at that location, albeit at slow, congested speeds?
