Experts of company Telecom Daily has conducted a survey of quality of mobile communication in Moscow. The measurements were carried out in November of this year in the networks of GSM, 3G, LTE using the automated control system in accordance with the methodology approved by the Minister.
For the year to the average speed in the 3G and 4G networks in Moscow increased by 35-40%, says the research company. The leader in average data transmission speed in 3G network experts called Tele2. The average speed towards the subscriber in its network amounted to 12.1 Mbit/s, maximum of 31.6 Mbit/s In 4G networks, the leader in average and maximum data transfer speed to a subscriber was the “MegaFon”: 18 Mbit/s and 93,1 MB/s respectively.
As noted by Rbc, “Beeline”, 61.6 per cent of subscribers use 3G networks, 26.3% of the 4G. MTS, the figures are 44.3 per cent and 29.3% respectively; that of “MegaFon” — 57,8% and 20.6%, “Tele2 is 76.2% and 23.8%.
