According to industry watcher OpenSignal, Singapore is the country with the fastest LTE networks with 37 Mbps on average while South Korea has the best coverage with 97 per cent on LTE. SINGAPORE: The Republic has the fastest LTE mobile networks in the world, averaging 37Mbps, according to the findings by OpenSignal which was released in February. This puts Singapore markedly in front of New Zealand, with an average of 29Mbps, and Hungary and Israel, which were tied at 28Mbps, the fourth quarter 2015 report showed. Local telcos Singtel and StarHub joined Canada's SaskTel in vying for the title of the world's fastest operator, and while they registered 40Mbps, 39Mbps and 35 Mbps, respectively, OpenSignal said due to the margin of error, "it was a statistical tie". Singapore's other telco, M1, had an average speed of 29Mbps, or the 11th-fastest in the world. In terms of coverage, South Korea continues to lead the way with 97 per cent of the country wired up and LTE-ready. It was followed by Japan (90 per cent) and Hong Kong (86 per cent), while Singapore was sixth at 83 per cent, the report showed. In Singapore, Singtel had coverage of 86 per cent (ninth in the world), M1 had coverage of 82 per cent (23rd globally), while Starhub had coverage of 79 per cent (34th globally). "South Korea and Singapore have set themselves apart from the main body of global operators, providing both superior coverage and speed," the report said. "The biggest standouts were South Korea’s Olleh and Singapore’s Singtel. Olleh excelled in coverage, but also provided one of the fastest connections speeds in our report, 34 Mbps. Meanwhile Singtel hit the 40 Mbps mark in speed while still maintaining a coverage rating of 86 per cent." The report used data from 357,924 global OpenSignal LTE users who have contributed data during Oct 1 and Dec 31 last year. All of the data came from users of its Android app, and not those from iOS devices, it added. - CNA/kk
