Mobile, Verizon offer fastest mobile internet speeds in Houston

Three of the four leading mobile service providers in the US are in a near-tie for fastest networks, according to the eighth annual speed tests by PCMag. T-Mobile has largely closed its coverage gap with Verizon within metro areas, making it an excellent lower-cost choice. When it came to national average download speeds, AT&T hit the highest at 32.6 megabits per second, followed closely by Verizon at 31.1 Mbps - though Verizon still ranked higher due to maximum speeds and network reliability.

Representatives for Verizon and AT&T could not be reached, but according to published reports, company representatives said they were not aware of any problems.

The station also reports that Sprint customers were also affected which officials attributed to an issue with a local exchange provider.

RootMetrics conducted tests in Houston from May 10 through May 18. They used Samsung Galaxy S8 phones to continually run speed tests based on a customized version of Ookla's Speedtest.net software. The T-Mobile and Sprint have shown 29.3 and 20.5 Mbps downloading speed respectively. While LTE networks still have room to grow, the next big leap in speeds is expected to arrive with 5G over the next few years. The regions like northeast and northwest have favored more T-Mobile connectivity and the south-central region involving Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana has shown improved connectivity with Verizon.
