Ookla released its Q2 2020 Speedtest United States Market Report, which showed that the overall median download speed over mobile in the U.S. increased 15.8% between Q2 2019 and Q2 2020 to 29 Mbps. But perhaps most revealing, was the conclusion that AT&T proved to be both the fastest and most consistent U.S. mobile operator during the tested period.
AT&T achieved an Ookla Speed Score of 41.23, while T-Mobile came in second with a 33.69, followed by Sprint (31.53) and Verizon (30.77). In the category of network consistency, AT&T again came in first with the operator achieving 79.7% of results that showed at least a 5 Mbps minimum download speed and 1 Mbps minimum upload speed. T-Mobile US was second (79.2%), Verizon Wireless third (73.8%) and Sprint fourth (66.1%).
