Mobile download speeds achieved by smartphones
outpace those achieved on wi-fi connections in 33 countries, and nowhere more so than in Australia. That is one of the key findings of a recent report
from OpenSignal, based on the analysis of data transfers made using smartphones in 80 countries.
While download speeds achieved by smartphones using wi-fi in Australia was approximately middle-of-the pack, at 21.6 Mbps, it was the performance of Australia’s mobile downloads that set the country apart. With a speed of 34.6 Mbps, only South Korea, Norway, Singapore and the Netherlands outperformed Australia, accounting for the significant gap when compared with other countries.
