Revealed – The Fastest Mobile Broadband Operators for Top UK Venues

Friday, July 22nd, 2016 (12:08 am) - Score 714

Have you ever wondered which UK Mobile Network Operator (MNO) delivers the fastest Mobile Broadband (3G and 4G) data speeds at the O2 Arena, Wembley Stadium and Chelsea FC’s home of Stamford Bridge? Probably not, but RootMetric’s has the answer for you and it’s a fight between EE and Vodafone.

It’s perhaps wise to take the following results with a pinch of salt because certain mobile operators tend to have agreements with specific venues (e.g. EE’s 400Mbps capable 4G LTE-Advanced test at Wembley Stadium – here), which means that the performance at such venues often won’t represent general network quality elsewhere in the country.

On the other hand there is perhaps a certain sense of comical irony to be extracted from the fact that Vodafone came out top at the O2 Arena 🙂 .

    Hmm but the 02 arena is kinda biased… wouldn’t you think? There’s no back hauls within 1km where as the Wembley there’s 10 gb network back hauls everywhere that’s why EE took advantage of it and ran a back haul into the Wembley and set up shop only going to cost a few thousand on equipment but them you have a 10 gb capable network and now in 10 years will still be 100gbe and 400gbe and possibly more

      Yes and I did mention the potential for baise and the limited use of such performance data above. Take with a pinch of salt.
