AT&T Inc. seized the speed lead in early 2019 – and didn’t let go.
DATE: January 9, 2020
After being in third place during 2018, the company surpassed its three big rivals in the U.S. in the first quarter and sustained that No. 1 spot until the end of the year, according to data by Ookla, which tracks network speeds, that was highlighted in an AT&T announcement. All of the companies added to their speeds during the two years, but AT&T (NYSE: T) emerged the victor.
The company ramped up speeds by more than 70 percent from the first quarter of 2018 to the end of 2019 on all devices, the report said.
