Is the AT&T Network Faster Then Verizon?

Posted by · 4939 views
BoyGeniusReport has compiled network speed test results submitted by AT&T and Verizon customers. The results are a bit surprising.

VERIZON
Average download speed, EV-DO Rev. A: 701kbps
Median download speed, EV-DO Rev. A: 440kbps
Average upload speed, EV-DO Rev. A: 322kbps
Median upload speed, EV-DO Rev. A: 286kbps


AT&T
Average download speed: 933kbps
Median download speed: 840kbps
Average upload speed: 180kbps
Median upload speed: 215kbps

Unexpectedly, AT&T on average is 33% faster then Verizon when downloading data. This is quite a significant speed advantage; however, if you look at upload speeds you will notice that Verizon performs 79% faster then AT&T.

For those who spend a lot of time browsing online then AT&T clearly wins out. For those who upload a lot of pictures and video perhaps Verizon would be a better choice.

BoyGenius has a more detailed breakdown of the stats which can be found at the link below.

The sad part is, when AT&T updates 3G, the upload speed will be a lot faster than Verizon, but us iPhone 3GS users won't even be able to take advantage of it because Apple didn't upgrade the upload ability on the 3G chip. Way to go Apple!!!

Not surprised by this at all....In my area AT&T's network is much faster than anything EVDO has to offer. YMMV
