AT&T Named “Nation’s Fastest Wireless Network”
Wednesday, October 9th, 2019
Increasingly you depend on your mobile connection to experience your favorite entertainment, like the “Friends: 25 Years – The Official Playlist”, without having to think about your connection speeds.
That’s what makes today’s achievement so important for AT&T wireless customers. Results from consumer-initiated tests in 3Q 2019 taken with Speedtest by Ookla show AT&T is the Fastest Wireless Network in the Nation for the third consecutive quarter.
This coveted industry three-peat just begins to scratch the surface on how our relentless focus on enhancing your experience is delivering real results today. The recognition also comes on the heels of us being recognized by Global Wireless Services (GWS) as the Nation’s Best Wireless Network for the second year in a row.
AT&T continues to outperform competitors. We have increased our speeds by 43% year-over-year. These results reflect the billions of dollars of technology investments we have spent on our network creating great customer experiences. Our 5G Evolution foundation translates into a noticeably faster experience in areas where the network technologies are available – up to 2x faster than standard AT&T LTE.
If all this isn’t enough to get you as excited as we are, the Speedtest results continue to show that AT&T is the fastest network for iPhones as well.** And take it from celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, you wouldn’t want to get a cutting-edge device like the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro and put it on a ‘just OK’ network.
What Makes Ookla Results Different
Consumers overwhelmingly choose Speedtest as the best way to check their network speed, and with over 10 million consumer-initiated tests taken daily on Speedtest, Ookla provides invaluable insight into the performance, quality and accessibility of networks worldwide.
