United States: Verizon dominate download speeds, T-Mobile lead upload

With average speeds of 20.31Mbps, Verizon lead our download speed chart against AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint in our latest report for the US. T-Mobile, who currently rank third in our download speed chart, have recently made a new deal with CBS to repurporse specturm used by local TV stations in the New York area, which could see better coverage in New York as early as 2019.

Interestingly, both Verizon and AT&T are making developments in another direction, having recently begun testing 4G LTE drones to bring cellular service in next to no time, to those in need of rescuing. Bringing coverage to an area that previously had no coverage could be a game changer for search and rescue operations.
