Computerworld – Data downloads and Web browsing on new LTE-ready smartphones were somewhat faster on ATT‘s new 4G LTE network than on a distant some-more widely widespread 4G LTE network of opposition Verizon, according to a investigate expelled Tuesday by by Metrico Wireless.
Still, a investigate found that normal LTE download speeds surfaced 10 Mbps on any network, while a speed of information downloads and Web browsing opening were 5 times faster on 4G LTE than on a 3G networks of a particular carriers, Metrico said.
Metrico conducted some-more than 24,000 tests in 3 cities regulating dual new LTE smartphones on ATT‘s network and 3 LTE smartphones on Verizon‘s, pronounced Amit Malhotra, Metrico clamp boss of marketing, in an email.
The ATT LTE network now serves 15 cities, while Verizon‘s LTE network is now in 179 U.S. cities.
Video and battery opening sundry a most. Metrico found that a particular smartphone, rather than a carrier, was many obliged for those differences.
Metrico, that measures device opening for wireless carriers, pronounced that a investigate found that both carriers were “comparable” on information download speeds — a normal opening on all 5 tested inclination exceeded 10 Mbps.
The HTC Vivid on ATT‘s LTE network had a tip download speed –39.5 Mbps — while a Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket on ATT got a top normal download speed — 14Mbps — over steady tests.
The fastest singular download on a Verizon LTE was 33.5 Mbps on a HTC ThunderBolt, while a fastest normal download speed was 11.3 Mbps on a Motorola Droid Bionic. Samsung Droid Charge had an normal download speed of 10.8 Mbps over Verizon‘s LTE, Metrico said.
Web page bucket times were also “comparable” for all 5 smartphones tested opposite a dual networks, according to a stody.
On a ATT network, Web page downloads regulating an HTC Vivid device took an normal of 1.10 seconds while a Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket took an normal of 0.92 seconds to bucket a customary Web page. Meanwhile, Metrico pronounced a HTC ThunderBolt took 1.42 seconds to bucket a Web page, a Samsung Droid Charge took 1.58 seconds and a Motorola Droid Bionic took 1.14 seconds on a Verizon LTE network.
While a LTE network was a cause in information download and Web browsing speeds, a poignant differences in video opening could be traced mostly to a device, Metrico said.
The Samsung Droid Charge on Verizon showed a top support smoothness rate, while a Motorola Droid Bionic on a same network showed a lowest support smoothness rate of a 5 models tested, Metrico noted. “Onboard device attributes–including video processor and digest software–play a pivotal purpose in a [smartphone] subscriber’s video experience,” Metrico pronounced in a report.
