Looking for fast networks? NYC is the place to be, Rootmetrics says

March 30, 2021


The most-populous market in the U.S. — New York City and its surrounds — is also the fastest, according to a new ranking of metropolitan cellular networks by Rootmetrics.

New York City’s aggregate median download speed of 46.3 Mbps was the fastest in the country, bolstered by a 72.0 Mbps carrier speed from Verizon that was the second-fastest speed recorded by Rootmetrics during the second half of 2020. Only a 77.5 Mbps speed clocked on AT&T’s network in Kansas City, MO, was faster.

Of the top 10 largest U.S. metro areas, only three of them made the top 10 in terms of median market speeds: NYC, Philadelphia, PA (ranked third-fastest out of 125 U.S. markets) and Washington, D.C. (9th out of 125).
