AT&T Takes Home the “Nation’s Fastest Wireless Network” Crown for 2019
AT&T 5G Is being built on top of the Nation’s Best and Also the Fastest Wireless Network
AT&T* customers value speed. And 2019 was a great year for AT&T customers!
The results are in—and AT&T is the Fastest Wireless Network in the Nation** for the fourth consecutive quarter according to results from Speedtest® by Ookla®. This also means AT&T led the way in consumer-initiated tests for all of 2019.
With over 10 million consumer-initiated tests taken daily with Speedtest, Ookla provides invaluable insight into the performance, quality and accessibility of networks worldwide. What’s more, AT&T remains the fastest network for iPhones**.
These results reflect the billions of dollars of technology investments we have spent on our wireless network creating great customer experiences. Speedtest results show we increased our speeds by 45.7% year-over-year, while one of our competitors never “checked the box” on speed with only a 16.5% increase year over year and the other defined what it meant to be “Un-speedy” with only a 9.4% increase year over year.
We’re building 5G on top of the Best Wireless Network in the Nation according to America’s biggest test. And today, AT&T offers millions of AT&T customers access to 5G Evolution in over 550 markets in the U.S. on any of the 20 capable devices available today.
Additionally, AT&T scored the highest amongst US operators in the 5G theme by GlobalData, with a thematic score of 5 out of 5 in the Telecom Operators Sector Scorecard, which GlobalData says indicates that AT&T's activity in 5G will significantly improve its future performance.****
