The USA ranks 68th globally in mobile video experience, according to a new report from OpenSignal.

While there was an improvement in Americans’ Video Experience — with the score increasing from 46.7 to 53.8 points — it was not enough to shift U.S. consumers up a gear into the Good category. Instead, Video Experience remained stuck in the Fair category. Americans had the lowest Video Experience score of any of the G7 economically leading countries as U.S. carriers struggle with the combination of enormous mobile video consumption and insufficient new spectrum. Opensignal’s results highlight the need for the release of more mid-band spectrum to help U.S. carriers meet the mobile video needs of Americans.

Although, the U.S. and its territory of Puerto Rico had the lowest improvement of any country in North and Central America, it's just one point shy of moving into the Good category. Currently, the U.S. still falls into the Fair category, meaning video streamed to smartphones often exhibits longer loading times and frequent interruptions, especially at higher resolutions.

The top 11 countries are all in Europe, with Norway, the Czech Republic and Austria taking the top
three positions. Those three are joined by Denmark, Hungary and the Netherlands as the only countries which feature in the Excellent category for mobile Video Experience in 2019.

The highest ranked non-European country is Singapore in 12th position. Check out the chart below or hit the link for the full report.
