[Stuff / OpenSignal] NZ has the fastest 4G speeds in the world

New Zealand has dethroned Australia as the nation with the fastest 4G networks in the world, according to a new report.

A report from OpenSignal, a British analytics firm that measures global mobile broadband speeds, showed that because Spark and Vodafone have launched LTE on two frequency bands each, they have delivered "an awful lot of 4G capacity".

The average real-world download speed in New Zealand is 36Mbs, compared to Australia (21Mbs), Britain (13Mbs), United States (10Mbs),

That means our 4G speeds are faster than some people get over broadband.

The report also praised New Zealand's progress after only launching 4G two years ago, with the country beating out tech giants like Singapore (33Mbs) and South Korea (29Mbs).

Report (with pretty interactive graphs!) : http://opensignal.com/reports/2015/09/state-of-lte-q3-2015/

I complain when it's 'only' 20 mbps. I've done speedtests in locations where it maxes out at 100 mbps on my cellphone. That's real 4G LTE, unlike your American ads. Also unlocked phones are the default thing here unless it's an either super cheap smartphone or on a contract.

Also if you are with a certain network (Spark), free wifi hotspots everywhere where telephone booths used to be.

The only issue here is that mobile data allowance vs. price wise is a joke. See, this is what forced regulation from the government does.....

Don't get cocky even the 10Mbps of the US dethrones my ADSL.

I guess it's easy to have the fastest 4G LTE speeds when you are on an island where there are 10 times more sheep than people. I don't think that sheep have discovered the internet yet.

I'm just saying.

you forget that it's (THREE!) islands with three different climates and a variety of terrain.

Article seems to include only a few countries, I get like a minimum of 50Mbps even during peak hours, at night I get 70Mbps to 100Mbps.

Hey I'm just looking for a reason to get out of Los Angeles for reals. I wonder what grassy hills, trees (not palm trees) an clean air look like.
