January 26, 2021 – umlaut, the global consultancy company and world leader in mobile network testing and benchmarking, analyzed the mobile networks in the US metropolises Washington D.C, New York, Chicago, and Houston. Using the latest 5G capable smartphones (Samsung S20+) in mobile experience tests, the downlink and uplink performance of data services were tested and measured by drive tests. Commissioned by T-Mobile, the measurements were executed in December 2020 and January 2021. The test area, the drive routes and measurement times were defined by umlaut.

Hakan Ekmen, CEO Telecommunication at umlaut, explains: “Congratulations to T-Mobile. In average, T-Mobile shows the fastest data speed performance in the tested cities. On top, T-Mobile’s 5G availability is excellent with numbers clearly above 90% for each market. With our analysis we are fairly and transparently assessing the US digital infrastructure.”

The drive tests were conducted during December 2020 and January 2021 and covered the inner-city areas of the four US metropolises Washington D.C, New York, Chicago and Houston. The drive routes added up to 1927 miles thus representing a total area of 3489 square miles. The test areas selected account for more than 6500 test samples per operator.

T-Mobile shows the highest average download and upload speeds in all four cities up to two times faster than all other mobile networks. The test devices were operated in 5G preferred mode, which means they attach to 5G whenever it is available. Otherwise, the devices typically switch to 4G.
