When it comes to mobile speeds, no country can quite compare to Singapore. In our first State of Mobile Networks report for Singapore, we examined the mobile broadband experience offered by the city-state’s three major operators, and the LTE speeds we recorded were quite impressive. One operator, StarHub, averaged LTE download speeds greater than 50 Mbps in our measurements, and Singapore as a whole ranked No. 1 in 4G speed in our most recent global analysis of 88 countries.
But 4G download wasn’t the only speed category where Singapore’s operators stood out. All three operators rated highly in 3G download speed, overall download speed and 4G upload speed. The operator to beat in each of those metrics, however, was StarHub, which won all four of our speed awards in a clean sweep.
Singtel and M1 had their shining moments as well. Singtel won our 4G availability award, as our testers were able to find an LTE connection on its networks nearly 90% of the time. Meanwhile, M1 ran away with our 4G latency award with a measured LTE response time below 25 milliseconds.
For our full analysis, check out the report published today, and if you’re a 4G user in Singapore, we’d love to hear about your own mobile data experiences on M1, Singtel or StarHub in the comments section below.
