Mobile Internet Now Faster than WiFi in Many Countries
Recent speed tests in around 80 countries revealed that mobiles networks in 33 countries are now mostly faster than Wifi connections, according to a study by wireless coverage mapping company OpenSignal.
Speeds are expected to be given an additional boost with the rollout of 5G networks. However, in countries including UK and Ireland, Wifi is still the fastest way to go on the internet.
OpenSignal explained that Wifi networks often suffer from congestion when set up in an area already used by others, as opposed to mobile networks which provide a more consistent experience by using specific spectrums.
