OpenSignal has come out with their latest report on the global state of LTE, using data collected from its Android and iOS apps. I’ve already published a few data points in the daily news round-ups, like how T-Mobile has the fastest LTE network in the USA and Canadian carrier SaskTel has the third-fastest LTE speeds of any carrier worldwide.

Would you like to know more? I know I would. So let’s take a look at the bigger picture.

Here are the ten countries with the fastest LTE download speeds in Q4 2015:

  1. Singapore – 37 Mbps
  2. New Zealand – 29 Mbps
  3. Hungary – 28 Mbps
  4. Israel – 28 Mbps
  5. South Korea – 27 Mbps
  6. Romania – 26 Mbps
  7. Denmark – 25 Mbps
  8. Australia – 24 Mbps
  9. United Arab Emirates – 23 Mbps
  10. Netherlands – 23 Mbps

Canada—thanks largely to SaskTel—ranks 15th with an average download speed of 19 Mbps, while the USA ranks 55th at only 10 Mbps. And T-Mobile, America’s fastest LTE network? Their average download speed is 12 Mbps.

The two fastest carriers worldwide are both in Singapore—SingTel at 40 Mbps and StarHub at 39 Mbps. Canada’s SaskTel comes in third at a very respectable 35 Mbps.

Keep in mind that the data set for this report is a mere 357,924 users, so if you don’t like what you see you can increase the accuracy of the next one by installing the free app on your device.
