T-Mobile has fastest 4G LTE speeds in the U.S. for 19th straight quarter, says new report


Ookla’s Speedtest Intellence data has been saying for some time now that T-Mobile has the fastest 4G LTE speeds in the U.S., and today T-Mo claimed the crown once again.

According to the latest Speedtest Intelligence data from Ookla, T-Mobile had the fastest 4G LTE speeds in the U.S. in Q3 2018. That marks the 19th straight quarter that Ookla’s data has shown T-Mo to have the fastest LTE in the country.

The data from Ookla shows T-Mobile posted an average 4G LTE download speed of 31.7Mbps in Q3 2018, down just a smidge from last quarter. T-Mo’s average 4G LTE upload speed dropped a bit from last quarter, too, finishing with an average of 11.5Mbps.


Despite those slightly slower average speeds, T-Mobile still beat out Verizon, which posted an average of 29.6Mbps download and 9.6Mbps upload speeds in Q3 2018. AT&T finished third with 27.9Mbps and 7.7Mbps download and upload speeds, and Sprint rounded out the four major U.S. carriers with 25.5Mbps and 3.2Mbps download and upload speeds.

Ookla gathers its data from customers who use the Speedtest app, one of the more popular ways for you to test data speeds on your smartphone. If you’d like to test the network speeds where you are, you can grab the Ookla Speedtest app for Android and iOS.
