Minneapolis has the fastest average LTE speeds of all major cities in the United States, according to a recent study conducted by OpenSignal.

T Mobile Nationwide 4G LTE
OpenSignal found that the average LTE download connection in Minneapolis was 21.5 Mbps, almost twice as fast as the 11.65 Mbps average it measured in Las Vegas, which was the slowest among the 35 cities it tracked.

Four out of the five fastest cities were in the Midwest region, with Minneapolis joined by Detroit, Chicago, and St. Louis in the rankings.

OpenSignal said 29 of the 35 cities exceeded the national LTE download average of 13.98 Mbps. When compared to global speeds, though, only 14 cities had 4G speeds higher than the worldwide LTE download average of 16.6 Mbps.

OpenSignal collected its data from millions of smartphones with its app installed under conditions of normal usage.

The map of the US used in the story is T-Mobile's color. Let me say that TM sucks in Minneapolis, and MN in general, in my opinion. I tried them late 2016 for like 2-3 months and it was pathetically slow. I'd try to download a podcast at work and it would take 20 minutes, and I'm not exaggerating.

I'm on AT&T again now, and was on Verizon before my T-Mobile experiment. AT&T and Verizon are both pretty great.

Wonder what happened in your case, as T-Mo has been rock solid all over the metro and the greater Twin Cities area for me. Good coverage, and ridiculously fast. Looked in my Ookla app history and I’ve run around 20 speed tests over the past few years around the metro, and most have download speeds in the 40-70 Mbps range, with a few 10-20’s and a few 80+. Great downtown coverage in Mpls as well. Very happy with them here.
