Over 2 billion quality measurements and 80,000 network speed tests taken between October 1 and December 31, 2017, reveal that Telekom is delivering the overall fastest download speeds across both 3G and 4G networks. Telekom registered a download speed of 10.9 Mbps followed by Vodafone with 9.5 Mbps.

Our network testing also revealed that Vodafone’s network delivered better overall quality across both 3G and 4G, balancing both speed and latency both of which are important for good user experience and app performance.
About our testing
Tutela tests mobile networks by crowdsourcing anonymous sensor data from hundreds of millions of Android and iOS mobile users across the world. This enables us to collect billions of measurements every day and gain a real-world understanding of the mobile experience that mobile users are getting - not just in major towns & cities, but in all parts of the world.
Our testing methodology is designed to simulate typical user mobile behaviour, such as downloading a photograph or web page, rather than measuring the maximum performance, such as the peak download speed during a very large file transfer (which very few users will achieve) so that we can understand a typical user's experience.
