In the last six months the so-called “network experience” in Italy has recorded performances growing by all four operators – iliad, tim, vodafone and windtre. Vodafone was the best operator at national level in five of the seven categories examined. Among these, the result obtained in the video experience category in which the third place of last year was improved and the second of the previous quarter.
Opensignal, remember, awarded iliad last March with the global mobile network experience awards 2021 as an operator who has improved its network coverage 4g. Windtre is also first in the upload speed experience category with a score of 10,5 mbps, up 0.7 mbps compared to the previous report. Tim and vodafone if they share the first place in the 4g coverage experience, category in on have also improved iliad and windtre compared to the last relationship.
This opensignal report, ultimately, shows that the only speed of networks is not enough to understand the full spectrum of user experience. In particular, windtre reached 90% of the population with 5g using dnamic spectrum sharing (dss) technology, while vodafone and tim focused on the main italian cities. If on the one hand the 5g advances, on the other it begins to think about the shutdown of 3g networks.
Tim previews the switch-off next year while vodafone has disabled already started to turn off the 3g during the first trimester of 2021.
