T-Mobile highlights, in its latest commercial, that T-Mobile won Independent Third Party OpenSignal Awards in all the available categories.
Titled “Big Sweep”, the 30-second spot informs viewers that, after 5 billion real tests from real wireless customers, on every major network, T-Mobile has swept the competition at the OpenSignal Awards. Independent Third Party OpenSignal ranks T-Mobile’s network, according to the tech giant, number 1, and the same applies to its LTE availability, overall download speed, LTE latency, and every other category (download speed 3G, download speed 4G, latency 3G, latency 4G; note: latency, measured in miliseconds, represents – according to OpenSignal, “the delay data experiences as it makes a round trip through the network”, a lower score in this metric indicating “a more responsive network”). “That’s another reason why T-Mobile is America’s Best Unlimited Network.” – the voiceover adds at the end of the commercial, released with the hashtag #ReadEmAndSweep.
The song playing in the background is Demi Lovato’s 2017 single “Sorry Not Sorry” from her sixth album, “Tell Me You Love Me”, released earlier this year, on September 29.
OpenSignal compared the 3G and 4G performance of the Big 4 mobile operators in the US (AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, besides T-Mobile, of course) and concluded that T-Mobile, taking advantage of Verizon’s setback, moved ahead of its arch-rival in every metric they track.
According to OpenSignal, T-Mobile’s test results indicate average LTE download speeds of 17.5 Mbps and overall speeds of 16.1 Mbps. In terms of 4G availability, 4G signal was found on T-Mobile 90.0% of the time.
