Speed ​​test LTE-networks in Moscow: “MegaFon” MTS “Beeline” and Yota




For a long time the Russian Apple smartphone users could not use high-speed networks of the fourth generation. Such a possibility has appeared only in the last year after reaching an agreement with the Russian operators. Now the owners of iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone and iPhone 6 6 Plus in Russia can fully use all the LTE cellular providers. In this connection it is interesting comparative test speed networking, Mobiltelefon .


The research was conducted measurements of the speed of LTE-networks of 22 stations of the Moscow metro. In testing involved mobile operators “MegaFon” MTS “Beeline” and Yota. Last party – a newcomer to the market, but the 4G-network he developed one of the earliest. The measurements were performed only on the data rate that is not taken into account the quality of conversations. Opportunities 3G-connection is also not taken into account.

The experiment results in most parts of the operators have shown good results. The average speed of LTE in Moscow amounted to 20 Mbit / s. Due to the heavy load metropolis fourth generation networks is difficult to show all its possibilities, the authors of the study. But the end user the maximum speed is not as important as current performance is enough for comfortable work.

The first table shows the download speed LTE-networks in one and the other side for each operator. The measurements were carried out using the application SpeedTest.


Clear leader experiment did not reveal all coped with the test quite well. However, qualitative growth is still required, especially in the face of increasing availability of smartphones with support for fourth generation networks.

The second table each operator evaluated the quality and coverage LTE. In the experiment, a little better than the others showed himself “Megaphone”.
