4G users in the UK can expect an average speed of 14.7Mbps, the latest Ofcom study reveals, in a report that makes for mixed reading for the state of UK network provision.
The figure, which relates to the three-month period from October and December last year, is down from the second quarter when the average 4G speed was marginally higher at 15Mbps.
Top of the pops for 4G download speeds was EE with 18.6Mbps, while Vodafone squeaked in at second with 16.4Mbps.
At third was O2 with average download speeds of 13.9Mbps. And bringing up the rear in fourth was Three with a disappointing 8.5Mbps.
Upload speeds was a similarly up-and-down picture. EE is top again with 176.Mpps. Then it’s O2 (13.2Mbps), Vodafone (13.1Mbps) and Three (9.4Mbps) at second, third and fourth respectively.
Ofcom also announced that it’s satisfied that 4G is substantially outperforming 3G, which averaged speeds of 5.9Mbps for the period measured.
