A study by RootMetrics has revealed that EE is the UK capital’s best mobile network for the fourth consecutive time.
To reach this conclusion, the analytics firm looked at more than 88,000 samples. All four top providers were assessed in the process of this research and EE achieved a score of 93.5 out of 100, with Three beaten into second place with a score of 90.5. O2 achieved a score of 89.8 and Vodafone brought up the rear with a score of 88.1.
EE had the fastest data; however, Three was the most reliable. EE offered an average download speed of 23.1Mbps, much higher than the last test carried out by RootMetrics in April. Three was placed first for calls but came last in the assessment on texts. EE was rated best for texts.
EE welcomed its rating and confirmed that it believes it is providing customers with the best service overall. It acknowledged that an increasing number of customers are choosing to use analysis such as that by RootMetrics to choose their supplier.
The testing period ran from 22nd October to 30th October and covered more than 2,000 miles of the capital. Average speeds for all aspects of service and reliability featured quite heavily.
The CEO of RootMetrics, Bill Moore, stated that the analysis is based on real-world situations and this particular analysis shows that improvements have been made by all four of the top providers.
