2017 was a good year for mobile users in the United States - Verizon launched its unlimited data plan, T-Mobile responded by one-upping its costs, AT&T followed two weeks later, and Sprint went one step further with prompting users to switch from Big Red. But the Unlimited 4G revolution came at a price - speeds went south.
The situation improved in the three-month period, ending in November 2017, where all four major carriers saw LTE speeds improve, even if AT&T and Verizon are still struggling to reach their initial speeds.
August saw all-time low 4G speeds for AT&T and Verizon with respectively 12.1 Mbps and 14.4 Mbps. Sprint, on the contrary, managed to average 11.8 Mbps in November, more than 2 Mbps faster than its speeds in February. And while these three were trying to keep up, T-Mobile solidified its lead.
It's yet to be seen if carriers can push speeds even higher. AT&T might decide to withdraw from the race completely and concentrate on providing true 5G, as it promised earlier this month.
USA is really far behind the rest of the world! In Sweden I have truly unlimited 4G, no restrictions at all, with download speeds of 80-150 Mbps, including 100 GB 4G data in USA if I visit USA!
Most people dont get that. It also depends on towers, region, and tower quality and quantity. Its hilarious when people like you tell people to not comment on things yhey dont know about when your comment ironically shows you have no idea what you...
Yes people who use their rights or dont have normal intetnet are greedy. Noy the companies over charging for crappy networks and not improving them for such loads
