We don’t have too much longer to wait now before the first 5G iPhones, but don’t expect too much: analytics data shows that the slowest 5G speeds among 12 countries tested were found in the US and UK ….
This contrasts with the fastest 5G speeds, found in Saudi Arabia and Canada.
Canada delivered 90Mbps, perhaps not surprising when you consider that its 4G speeds are already twice as fast as in the US.
Opensignal, which collated the data, said that the prevalence of low-band 5G in the US explained both the low speeds and high-ish availability.
In the US the low-band 5G services of T-Mobile and AT&T have helped drive a high 5G Availability result.
The highest speed seen was a blistering 494.7Mbps, or about half of the theoretical gigabit maximum found on mmWave 5G.
You can see the full rankings below, for fastest and slowest 5G speeds, and best and worst availability. »
