This just in: Verizon now has the fastest mobile data speeds across the United States.
That is, according to the exhaustive annual report released by PCMag.
The report, dubbed Fastest Mobile Networks speed test, measured the 3G, and 4G LTE speeds for Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T respectively.
Tests were conducted within cities across the country, where data speeds varied heavily.
After the research, it was concluded that Verizon had the best data speed on average overall and specifically for 4G LTE.
The latter part is significant because that is currently the premium data speed available for mobile networks and considered a few ticks below broadband cable speed.
So what does this mean for Verizon?
Bragging rights in their next campaign of course, but also the possibility that they’ve got a leg up on the competition in terms of establishing the infrastructure needed to have these high data speeds.
