Operators have started to measure the mobile internet speed since 3G. The easiest way – to buy SIM card, install free software on PC or smartphones and make measurements in different city parts. More complicated way – use professional equipment. These methods are being used today.
Three or four researches had been presented in the last months, and it is possible to see which operator won. Results of each test differ a lot and to check the accuracy of them is impossible.
MTS is using data by American company Ookla for internal needs. It collects data of million users’ measurement of mobile Internet speed on Russian territory via Speedtest app that can be downloaded for free.
