Which Mobile Network is Winning the 4g Race?

4G has really take off in the past year or so, mainly because our networks have embraced the service and really brought it out to their customers, but which network is doing the best, and which is lagging behind?

Today we’re strictly discussing the four major networks, in this case; EE, O2, Vodafone and Three, with Orange and T-Mobile obviously included with EE.

Rootmetrics recently conducted a report of all four networks’ performance, judging all of them in text, data, call, reliability and speed categories, which gave us the following results.

Text

This category relates to the average coverage score of each network when sending text messages, with Rootmetrics covering over 23,000 miles of the UK to draw up their its results.

EE came out on top with an overall score of 93.0, followed by O2 with 90.8, Three came up third with a score of 90.4, with Vodafone sitting in the final spot with 88.3.

Calls

As you’d guess, this category is similar to the text area, only judging call coverage instead of text messages.

EE again topped the pile with a score of 86.3, ahead of O2 with 79.2, Three stayed in the third position with a score of 76.3 and Vodafone again stayed in last place with 66.6.

Data

The Data coverage rating is another similar category, and something that many of us are driven absolute bonkers over, especially when trying to send an email or check out Twitter feeds when on the go.

Believe it or not, it was EE who continued to top the pile with a score of 81.0, ahead of Three, who managed a score of 67.1, O2 fell into the third spot with a score of 48.4 and Vodafone continued to hold the pile up with a score of just 30.2.

Speed

This category is designed to judge the overall speed of the network, whether it’s the internet speeds, connection speeds or text sending speeds, giving yet another overall score for each network.

EE again lead the charge with an emphatic score of 102.4, standing head and shoulders above the rest, with O2 proving the closest competition, with a score of 75.9, Vodafone managed to fight its way to third with 72.9, with Three lagging in the last spot with 69.0.

Reliability

The fifth and final category right here is reliability, which covers everything from being able to have service to making calls and being able to send texts.

It was a clean sweep for EE, who again climbed to the top of the rankings, with a score of 77.7, Three finished runners-up with 74.2, with O2 in third with 59.1, Vodafone again struggled with a score of just 40.2.

The Verdict

The winner here is pretty obvious, having topped all five categories; EE simply dominates the market right now, most likely due to sharing networks with Orange and T-Mobile.

The worst performance comes from Vodafone, sitting at the bottom of four of the five different rankings, and being severely let down by its reliability ranking.

Three is marginally above O2, but both are ranking similarly, but both are still a fair way away from EE, who have taken the UK network battle by storm.

Don’t be put off or make your mind up on these national scores though, as different areas obviously vary in their performances, so do your homework before choosing a network if you can!
