US mobile customers cannot connect to millimeter networks — although cell-based companies, particularly Verizon, have for years undermined the very fast form. 5G.
AT&T and T-Mobile customers equipped with millimeter-wave network equipment connected to mmWave 5G only 0.5 percent of the time within 90 days between January 16 and April 15, 2021, according to Performance report released Wednesday. Even on Verizon, the carrier and release of the most dangerous mmWave 5G, mobile users spent 0.8 percent of their time on an electronic network that uses its faster speed capabilities than the low and medium spectrum. The average speed of the mmWave 5G system was 232.7 Mbps of AT&T, 215.3 Mbps of T-Mobile, and 692.9 Mbps of Verizon.
“The average time connected to the mmWave 5G” represents the amount of time connected to the mmWave between users who have the mmWave 5G device and connected to the mmWave once, Opensignal told Ars. This means that the numbers are not driven by devices that are not new enough to use mmWave 5G – the number of three large carriers is less than 1% when testing users with devices compatible with mmWave networks.
“In Opensignal’s analytics, we always see Verizon mmWave 5G users experiencing longer connections to mmWave 5G than users carrying other US,” the report said. During this 90-day period, Verizon users saw a 0.8% mmWave 5G connection time compared to 0.5% on AT&T and T-Mobile. AT&T. “All three major carriers have” significant improvements in the availability of mmWave 5G services, “the report said.
Another report published by Opensignal Wednesday said that – counting 5G on all bands, not just Wave – 5G was available 33.1 percent of the time on T-Mobile, 20.5 percent on AT&T, and 11.2 percent on Verizon.
Opensignal’s fast-paced testing programs “take billions of dollars every day from over 100 million devices worldwide,” and “make” more of us through back-to-back experiments, “the experimental company said. he says.
Verizon’s lead in mmWave 5G is not surprising, as “Verizon’s 5G transmission system has been very successful in mmWave, while T-Mobile focused on 600-MHz and its 2.5-GHz 5G services, and AT&T has been using a smaller 5G band so far, “says Opensignal.
mmWave 5G has not been a way to connect phones, because radio waves do not travel far and are easily blocked by walls and other obstacles. The epidemic also has fewer opportunities for people to connect with mmWave 5G because the technology is best heard in public places as well as at large events.
“With the epidemic, large groups of people didn’t gather much in cities, stadiums, or shopping malls — so we haven’t seen the full benefits of mmWave 5G services,” Opensignal VP reviewer Ian Fogg told Ars in response to our questions. “In addition, we will see climate change in the time when users are connected to the mmWave, because the mmWave location is actually outside.”
Fogg also noted that “the physics of high-speed mmWave bands mean signals that start outdoors tend to be outdoors,” and people apparently spend longer outdoors in summer than in winter. However, “if we see more Wave placed inside large buildings such as shopping malls or metro, the weather will decrease,” he said.
Those caves mean it is too early to sign up for Wave 5G as a major internet user. But for now, mmWave 5G is not making a big deal out of US mobile connectivity, and it is unclear if it could be a major factor for smartphone users. This technology could end up helping more internet users to run faster through network-to-point communication, but most people would prefer to be connected by wire. In addition, the release of the Earth-Star-orbit satellite service may reduce the interest in online mmWave 5G, as well as the availability of Verizon’s mmWave 5G Home service very little. T-Mobile soon he found 5G internet service, but that does not use mmWave.
