Canada’s Big Three carriers Bell, Rogers and Telus are leading the way in 5G reach, according to an Opensignal report measuring 5G network performance for 144 network operators worldwide. Three domestic operators were ranked as high performers in Opensignal’s 5G Reach category. 2022 5G Global Mobile Network Experience Awards.
The 5G Reach category analyzes the geographic reach of an operator’s 5G network by measuring the average percentage of all locations visited by the user where the user is connected to the 5G network.
Rogers ranked 14th out of 34, scoring 5.3 out of 10. This indicates that a user on this carrier detected his 5G signal in just over half of the places he visited. Meanwhile, Bell and Telus both scored his 4.8 points, ranking him 21st and him 22nd respectively. Only the top eight carriers scored him 6 points or more, but the global network average he remains low at 3.7 points.
However, 5G reach continues to improve as operators invest heavily in expanding the geographic reach of their 5G networks. For example, Bell and Telus ranked high in the category with the most improved 5G reach with 72.5% and 71.2% respectively.
Unlike last year, Canadian domestic operators failed to enter the best 5G gaming experience category, which measures gaming performance using 5G signals. Neither of the three carriers performed best in the 5G download and upload speed categories, nor the 5G video experience category.
