The first full quarter of Ookla speed test data since Verizon brought back unlimited data is here. T-Mobile’s on top once again – 14 quarters in a row as America’s Fastest LTE Network! – but that’s nothing new.
After just a few months offering unlimited data, Verizon dropped to 3rd behind T-Mobile and AT&T in Ookla’s latest quarterly rankings based on millions of real world wireless tests.
Apart from unpardonable mistakes like being late to the game with advanced network technologies – 4×4 MIMO, 256 QAM, etc – Verizon has a bigger fundamental problem: spectrum, the life blood of the wireless industry. Verizon has by far the least amount of spectrum per customer.
