Last month, OpenSignal unveiled its first analysis of mobile video experience, which measures the quality of video consumers see when streaming over their mobile connections. We’ve already taken a broad look at video experience in countries around the world in our State of Mobile Video report. In the U.S., we see Verizon leading the video pack.
Despite the gap between the two pairs of operators, all four of them landed within the Fair category of our ratings. Fair means that mobile connections weren’t able to support high-resolution video without prolonged stalling and long wait times, but were able to handle low-resolution video with few problems. None of the U.S. operators were even close to achieving a perfect score, but Verizon users enjoyed the highest overall video experience score of 50.6, followed by T-Mobile at 48.2. Sprint and AT&T were some way behind with scores just above 40. For more information about OpenSignal’s video experience measure, please read this blog post.
