mobile coverge and speed test in UK while travelling :

Mobile cells covering roads reach only a comparatively small number of customers. This makes the deployment of a mobile network along motorways a relatively costly affair.
  1. Nonetheless EE and Three managed to deliver results in connecting roads performance which were remarkably close to the benchmark results shown in small cities.On YouTube SD EE and Three show a 90 % success rate while Vodafone and Three stay below 80 %. Youtube HD makes things worse.( source :)
  2. The key performance indicators in the web-page download sessions showed a success ratio of 92.4 % (EE) and 89.9 % (Three) which are slightly lower than in small cities.
    a)Vodafone with 75.8 and even more Telefonica with 75.6 % had noticeably more difficulties covering roads. You can see download the entire here
  •  Vodafone and more so Telefonica again have issues with file transfer success ratios starting below 90 % and in many cases reaching around 80 %.

The Mobile Network Speed Test in UK :Vodafone vs EE vs Telefonica

While Telecom network providers take great care in covering the metropolitan areas, small cities often lag behind. Is this true for the United Kingdom too?

"mobile network speed test in UK"

How does Mobile Network speed in terms of web page downloads compare in UK .In 2015 the Mobile Network Test in the UK  compared  3  telecom majorsThree, O2 and Vodafone.The above chart shows the ranking of mobile Networks in term of web page downloads on their mobile
  •  In 2014  in a similar mobile network test showed EE as the clear winner followed by Three with the best voice performance. O2 and Vodafone followed almost head-to-head. 
1)The test also displayed much better performance in metropolitan areas than in smaller cities and on connecting roads. That fact and the population of 8.6 million people are good reasons to look at the results of the largest city London separately

2)One of the most often used services is web surfing which was tested with a mixture of 9 popular live and one static web-pages. The winner of last year‘s benchmark EE managed to improve its session success ratio for live web sites from 97 to 99 %.

a)The average session time to download a popular live web site decreased from 4.1 to 2.7 seconds.

 b)The other three operators showed almost identical session times between 3.1 and 3.2 seconds, but on reliability Vodafone clearly ranked second with a healthy success ratio of 97.4 %, while Telefonica followed with 96.8 %.

c)With an error rate of more than 5 % , all three telco network carriers needs quite catching up to do
