Cell phone network test: This is the fastest cell phone network in your city | life & knowledge

Which German city has the fastest mobile surfing – and where does the expansion of mobile communications still leave something to be desired?

COMPUTER BILD clarifies this question every year with a comprehensive network test, carried out with its own test app and the readers of COMPUTER BILD: More than 900,000 measurements between January and October 2022 form the basis for the answer to the question of how things are really changing the German network is up.

BILD exclusively mentions the most important results of the measurement in advance.

Mobile surfing in Germany is getting faster

The good news first: Mobile surfing in Germany is getting faster and faster! The average download rate rose from 47.1 to 62.7 Mbps across Germany compared to the previous year. The reason for this is primarily the expansion of the 5G networks.

However, city dwellers in particular benefit from this. Some of Telekom’s networks here reach glass fiber level. On the other hand, those who live in the country may now have 5G, but with provider 02 the average speed here was not dramatically higher than the previous LTE technology.

30 cities in comparison

But what is the specific situation in your city – and which of the providers has the best network?

Cologne is the front runner when it comes to download speeds: mobile phone users surf there with an average of 172.1 Mbps. At the bottom is Siegen: Here it is only 46.7 Mbps on average. Telekom is ahead in most cities – but not in all of them. In Dresden Vodafone has the edge, in Bochum O2.

All figures for the 30 cities, broken down by provider and upload and download, can be found in the tables below. The complete evaluation of the network test, including Germany-wide analysis of network coverage and all networks in a detailed comparison, can be found in the new issue of COMPUTER BILD 25/2022 – from December 2nd at the kiosk!
