Latest: Southeast Asian's 4G Availability and Speed Rankings

In OpenSignal’s latest global report titled ‘The State of LTE’ released in February this year, 50 billion measurements were collected and analyzed in the 4th quarter to compare 4G performance in 88 countries.

The report by UK-based wireless coverage mapping specialist used these measurements to compare 4G speed and 4G availability, ranking them first in each respective category and then comparing speed against availability for each state.

For this edition of the report, while more than these 88 countries have LTE services today, OpenSignal included the countries for which they had enough data to provide meaningful analysis.

For this particular report, 58,752,909,949 points were collected from 4,852,320 users during the period in between Oct, 1st until Dec 29th, 2017.

From the report, Seasia extracts the data on Southeast Asian countries and here you may find the rankings, latest rated in February 2018.

Note: Laos was not ranked.

Among other points highlighted in the latest reports are as following details:

# The fastest aren't getting any faster

The fastest LTE speeds seem to have hit a plateau at around 45 Mbps. For the last several global reports, we've failed to see any sizable increase in 4G speeds among the top performing countries, and the Holy Grail of 50 Mbps remains just as elusive.

# 5 countries now have 4G availability greater than 90%

While top-line speeds may be stagnant, 4G availability among the elite countries is still steadily rising. Consumers in five countries had access to an LTE connection more than 90% of the time — up from a mere two countries just three months ago.

# The industry sets its sights on growing LTE's reach

It's become quite clear that the global mobile industry is now focusing on expanding access to LTE signals to more people and places, rather than growing the raw speed of 4G networks. We saw significant increases in LTE availability across the board in our latest results.

# Europe and North America get a speed boost

While 4G speeds have stalled in much of the world, there were a few regional exceptions. We saw some sizable increases in speed in multiple European countries, most notably the Netherlands and Spain. In North America, Canada's speeds surged past 30 Mbps on the strength of Telus's recent LTE upgrades, while the U.S. regained the lost momentum caused by AT&T and Verizon's reintroduction of unlimited plans.
