4G coverage is great as well – but 4G speeds are slowing
OpenSignal just issued its first State of Mobile Networks report covering the four Nordic countries Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway. Based on 34 million crowdsourced tests taken in Q1 2016, OpenSignal shows which country (and which operator in it) that has the best:
- 4G coverage
- 4G download speed
- 3G download speed
- Combined download speed
- 4G latency
- 3G latency
And it is a race of high standards and tight results. Continue reading Nordic operators’ networks have no equal in speed. On 3G.

Wondered why American carriers spent so much effort and marketing dollars claiming and defending “the best mobile network” position lately?
It started with Verizon‘s balls commercial:
A year ago, we published “Finland: The land of three thousand Megabytes“. And it must have hit a nerve since it is – still today – one of our most read posts.
46% of Finnish SIMs are what the Finnish NRA calls “pay monthly subscribers with unlimited data“.

The mobile network performance crowdsourcer OpenSignal published its latest State of LTE report today. This time it’s based on data samples from 357924 mobile users who have OpenSignal’s app on their Android devices. The network performance data isn’t just gathered when users actively do a measurement; it’s collected all the time and the number of samples are therefore hundreds of millions. The stats thus better represent the normal behavioural patterns of users when it comes to time and location. The data is collected during the fourth quarter of 2015.

In our public industry analysis “Peak data” in sight? we use regulator data to identify Finland as the number 1 country in the world when it comes to mobile data usage, beating all the countries which typically are followed closely – USA, South Korea, Japan.
It’s with great pleasure we note that Finland’s third operator, DNA, has followed in its larger competitor Elisa’s footsteps and reported total mobile data traffic. And it is a blast. Too. Continue reading Finland: The land of three thousand megabytes
