T-Mobile has been rated the best mobile broadband network in the UK following independent tests carried out by P3 Solutions, a leading UK test house.
The tests, carried out over the last quarter, measured customer experiences of various mobile broadband networks during peak usage hours across 16 cities throughout the UK.
When measured against its network competitors, T-Mobile was found to be the fastest for internet upload (HSUPA) and download (HSDPA) speeds – plus fastest for web browsing and sending & receiving emails.
Using the T-Mobile mobile broadband network to access the BBC homepage was found to be up to 25% faster than its nearest competitor, while uploading photos and videos to the likes of Facebook and YouTube was 60% faster.
Such positive results for T-Mobile follow the company’s ongoing programme of technology upgrades to its 3G network. This has involved rolling out HSUPA across the UK resulting in a fivefold increase in upload speeds.
The company has also upgraded its HSDPA-enabled 3G network creating mobile broadband download speeds up to 4.5Mbps both within the M25 and other major cities throughout the UK.
T-Mobile has a 22% share of UK mobile broadband market and experienced a 35% increase in mobile broadband sales between Q2 and Q3.
