Some claims can be a rather difficult act to follow, but sometimes, a statement needs to be made if you are going to be a standout example in the industry. T-Mobile has stepped forward to claim that they have the fastest 4G LTE network in the nation, bar none. Would subscribers to AT&T, Verizon Wireless and Sprint beg to differ? I am quite sure that this particular debate is far from over, and T-Mobile’s own statement, “I warned the competition this day would come, and millions of speed tests from real people using their own phones prove it: T-Mobile’s nationwide 4G LTE network is the fastest network in the nation — bar none”, is definitely forceful and full of intent.
Just how did T-Mobile arrive at this conclusion? They used a different (some would say more transparent) path compared to the competition, where they relied on mobile data speed tests that has been collected from real consumers using the popular Ookla Speedtest app. T-Mobile’s analysis of the results are clear, and the Un-carrier’s announcement is confident that their claim will hold after referring to millions of real-time speed tests that involved over a million consumers. Do you share the same sentiment as T-Mobile? [Press Release]
