Vodafone is leading the field in terms of network performance in Australia. In the last three months of 2017, the mobile operator provided the best overall network speeds across both 3G and 4G networks in the last three months of 2017.
We analysed over 30 million data, sets to reveal this and also discovered that Vodafone is also providing best overall network quality when speed, latency, jitter, and packet loss are factored together.

In contrast, rival Optus hasn’t had a good three months with relatively poor overall network performance. That said it did achieve the best 3G speeds with 5.7 Mbps, but with users preferring 4G levels of performance, this may be small consolation.
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.
