Singapore has fastest LTE, South Korea has best coverage

OpenSignal has another report out today that places US networks firmly in the “needs improvement” category.

It announced in its global State of LTE report for the last quarter of 2015 that the US was ranked seventh in coverage and 55th in speeds. Average speeds across the five major networks (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular and Verizon) come to 10Mbps while coverage stands at 81 percent of the country.

This puts the country in line with Kuwaiti and Qatari carriers in terms of the composite picture. In the prime quadrant is Singapore, sixth in overall coverage (83 percent) and the best in speeds (37Mbps). South Korea is best in coverage at around 97 percent with speeds averaging 27Mbps, good for fifth in that respect.

Saudi Arabia, Costa Rica and Iran all have the worst average speeds with 3Mbps each. Sri Lanka has the least coverage with 39 percent.

357,924 OpenSignal app users were sampled for the report.
