Mobile network performance measurement firm RootMetrics has revealed that UK mobile network operators are delivering “outstanding 5G reliability with low latency”.

According to the latest RootMetrics UK Mobile Performance Review, a “highly competitive battle to provide the best 5G” has led all four major UK mobile operators - EE, Three UK, Virgin Media 02 and Vodafone UK - improving download speeds, reliability and latency of their networks in the first half of 2022.

Alongside isolated 5G testing, RootMetrics assessed all network technologies with 642,296 tests UK-wide, across the four nations and within 16 major metropolitan areas to compile the report. All of the report’s testing was carried out using Samsung 5G-enabled handsets sold by retailers to reflect the experience of consumers using 4G LTE and 5G networks.

In measuring relative network performance, BT-owned EE came out on top for all of the report’s UK-wide RootScore categories which measured: ‘Reliability’, ‘Accessibility’, ‘Speed’, ‘Data’, ‘Call’, and ‘Text’. This marked the ninth year in a row that EE has led on all seven UK-wide RootScore categories.
