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:
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.

OpenSignal released its crowdsourced 4G speed and coverage stats for Q3 2015 today. The data was anonymously collected from a total of 325221 iOS and Android smartphone users globally during June to August.
But before looking into OpenSignal’s new stats, let’s summarise what the Nordic operators have stated with regards to their 4G outdoor population coverage: Continue reading The best Nordic 4G networks: Crowdsourced reality vs. marketed population coverage
How much mobile services do you get for 20 EUR?
For 25? 30? 35? 40 EUR?
We have compared the service prices of all mobile operator brands in eleven countries: Germany, the UK, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland and Norway.
You already have a view about the consolidation of mobile operators in Europe, don’t you?
Some people believe that four mobile operators are the guarantee for sufficient market competition. The entry of Free Mobile in France suggests this. Continue reading Mobile consolidation: Less is more?
For the third consecutive year: Comprehensive business benchmark including more than 500 KPIs covering revenue, OPEX, CAPEX, headcount productivity, subscriptions & channels, performance, load, quality and innovation & growth – for 33 functions within a mobile operator, within a fixed/cable operator and/or within an integrated operator – respectively.

We’ve been awaiting Telenor’s official comments to OpenSignal’s new crowdsourced 4G coverage and speed test, but since Telenor hasn’t yet commented it we try to interpret the Norwegian results ourselves.
The last day to confirm participation in the Nordic operator benchmark 2015 is 23 January.
A few operators have confirmed their participation already, but since we 2015 expand the scope of the benchmark from mobile to mobile, fixed/cable and integrated operators (respectively) and add Denmark, there are a few operators who have been asked for the first time.
The operators who are asked are displayed.
You of course ask “why should I“?
To become aware of your blind spots. To measure and compare is to know. If you don’t participate, you blind spots will remain blind spots. You might even think you don’t have any.
If you don’t participate, you don’t know where competition is – and you don’t know what is local best practice.
If you do participate, you will get your business measured and compared to a relevant, local, unadjusted peer group.
33 functions are covered within these six domains:
- Marketing & sales
- Customer service
- Support functions
- Product development
- 80 revenue,
- 130 OPEX,
- 15 CAPEX,
- 130 productivity,
- 90 subscribers & channel,
- 70 performance,
- 50 load,
- 10 quality and,
- 10 innovation & growth KPIs
The KPIs are carefully selected for each function – and have been improved in cooperation with the operators having participated in 2013 and 2014.
Your position is only showed to yourself. The identities of the actual participants are anonymous. The data is not used for any other purposes than this benchmark. That’s our confidentiality promise.
We also promise a 100% fact based benchmark where no numbers have been “adjusted”.
Think again. You do have blind spots. Spot them.
