Is the UK really shuffling its feet on mobile data?
Did a 4G benchmark using Ookla SpeedTest on the 4G mobile phone here in Strasbourg, France where I live.
Like a saddo I posted the result on Facebook..
A few UK based friends replied with their results on various 4G handsets and my results were over 25% faster - and I didn't use the Samsung "download booster" function.
In one of the replies, a friend claimed he was almost under the tower in Aylesbury where he got his result, whereas I was 3 notches down from full signal..
Perhaps it's a case of over 3G subscription in the UK? Too many non 4G handsets out there to force the CSPs hands to make the investment?
Ironically one reply to my test result was from someone in South Africa who gets about the same speeds as the UK 4G subscribers, so either Orange France have really gotten their act together in the "Euro Capital" or the UK and results from the more developed areas of the 3rd world are just what are to be expected?
