Sprint network lags in OpenSignal tests nationally and in Kansas City

Sprint’s 4G LTE network continues to lag rival networks nationally and in Kansas City, according to testing by OpenSignal.

OpenSignal hailed the progress that T-Mobile USA has made in the last three years, naming its network as fastest among the four national carriers based on average download speeds.

The “big surprise” was that T-Mobile’s LTE signal nearly matched Verizon for being consistently available to customers’ phones and tablets, the report said. T-Mobile has suffered in some tests that said its network signals were concentrated in urban and suburban areas and less available in rural areas.

“Through its LTE network, T-Mobile is now challenging AT&T and Verizon’s dominance, while Sprint’s 4G service is the source of its continued struggles,” the report said.

OpenSignal noted that AT&T, which is a leader in the marketplace, fared poorly in the speed tests and its LTE signal was not available to customers as often as LTE signals were for T-Mobile and Verizon customers.
