Mobile Internet in Poland – What was the situation like in March 2024?

In March 2024, T-Mobile once again led the way in the 5G services market with an impressive average download speed of 247.8 Mbps. This result placed it well ahead of its competitors, securing its position as the leader in providing the latest generation of mobile Internet services. Meanwhile, Orange continued to dominate the upload speed category, taking the top spot with a speed of 51.3 Mbps, demonstrating its strong presence in the 5G market.

The competition was just as fierce in the 4G LTE segment, where T-Mobile kept its lead in download speeds at 43.8 Mbps. However, it was Play that stood out in March, leading in two categories: it achieved the highest upload speed on the 4G LTE network at 23.0 Mbps and recorded the lowest ping value of 30.4 ms, giving it the edge in data latency.

How did we collect data for the ranking?

The measurements are collected from the users of our mobile app. It allows us to measure basic mobile network parameters – including signal level and quality depending on the technology used by the mobile device, information about the mobile network operator, or the country where the smartphone is located. In addition, on-demand measurements of data download and upload speeds, as well as a latency test, are performed.

When the app notices a low-quality voice call, lack of mobile Internet service, or other services, it has the ability to report the user’s current position where the problem occurred.
