EE, Vodafone, O2 and Three have all been put by their paces in a brand new research that appears on the efficiency of the main cell suppliers’ 4G and 5G networks. The newest RootMetrics research has been printed this week which analyses all the UK’s 4 high cell networks for the primary half of this 12 months. So who’s the winner?
As soon as once more EE has come out on high however there is a purpose for patrons of all cell networks to be happy, particularly in case you’re with Three.

In reality, the RootMetrics research stated EE and Three had been “neck and neck” when it got here to delivering the perfect total 5G expertise.
The analysis stated the Three community is “one to keep watch over” after displaying “glorious” progress because the final research and seeing development in key areas like 5G availability and velocity.
The RootMetrics research stated: “Whereas all 4 operators proceed to make progress and supply customers with robust reliability, good latency, and quick speeds, EE and Three provided larger 5G availability and are at the moment neck-and-neck in terms of delivering the perfect total 5G expertise within the UK. That stated, it’s essential to understand that with the competitors persevering with to extend in such a dynamic panorama, we may see additional modifications forward.”
Whereas with EE the cell operator both received or shared successful in each UK-wide class the RootMetrics research checked out.
In reality, EE has been named the UK’s total finest cell community in each RootMetrics research relationship again to the second half of 2013.
That is a nine-year successful streak.
Talking about EE’s efficiency within the research, RootMetrics stated: “EE continued its run of excellence in UK-wide testing, rating first in all seven UK RootScore classes for the second straight check interval (together with a tie with Virgin Media O2 for textual content efficiency).

The primary half of 2022 additionally marks the tenth consecutive check interval during which EE has ranked first in six classes whole: total efficiency, reliability, velocity, in addition to knowledge, name, and textual content efficiency. Furthermore, EE’s mixture median obtain velocity of 66.2 Mbps was over twice as quick as that of every other community.”
Listed below are the general scores for the newest RootMetrics research…
EE – 96.7 (up from 95.3 in H2 2021)
Vodafone – 91.1 (up from 90.9 in H2 2021)
O2 – 89.3 (up from 88.6 in H2 2021)
