The well-known mobile network performance research company OpenSignal recently has published a report that covers LTE performance in 88 countries around the world throughout Q4 2017. Malaysia is also included in the report which means that there are several interesting statistics that you might want to check out in the report.
One of it is the average download speed through LTE connection and for Malaysia, it is rated at 14.83 Mbps. With that, OpenSignal ranks Malaysia as one of the lowest 20 countries in the list which was led by Singapore at 44.31 Mbps while India being ranked last due its 6.07 Mbps download speed.
Fortunately, Malaysia fared better when it comes to LTE availability. The report pointed out that the LTE connectivity in our country can be accessed 74.88% of the time throughout Q4 2017. While it is better than Algeria which occupy the bottom of the list due its 40.94% rating, Malaysia is nowhere near South Korea whereby users were able to achieve LTE connection 97.49% of the time.
For now, it is not known whether the situation in Malaysia can be improved or otherwise within the near future. That being said, we do know that the local players have already started looking at future technologies including 5G in order to improve the performance and quality of mobile networks in Malaysia.
