In terms of virtually all indicators, the parameters of Hungarian mobile networks have deteriorated over the past year, according to the crowdsourcing-based OpenSignal metrics previously cited by mobile operators and some professional stakeholders. The company's recently published collection of statistics, based on community measurements in the first quarter, shows the strengthening of the countries where commercial 5G networks have been widely launched in the past year.
SIC TRANSIT GLORIA MUNDI
OpenSignal statistics also this time they include the averages of slightly more providers in 100 countries instead of 87. The statistics are made up of a total of 87.5 billion individual measurements made by more than 43.3 million smartphones – the exact way the company does not report how these are distributed by country.
Hungary uses the “Download speed index” based on the latest measurements. In the measurement called, which essentially indicates the average download bandwidth, it ranked sixth in the rankings compared to last year with a download average of 31.7 Mbps. Our region was overtaken by Croatia, Lithuania and the Czech Republic, among others, and Canada, the Netherlands and South Korea topped the list. If we count only the European countries, the situation looks a bit more favorable, here the Hungarian is the tenth fastest network, while a year earlier it was the sixth on the list.

Docler Holding is looking for the best Hungarian developers in the IT sector with outstanding salaries – not only in domestic offices.
The backward ranking is partly due to the fact that in the total of 100 countries, Hungary is one of the eight countries where the average download bandwidth measured on the mobile network decreased slightly (by 3.2 percent). This may be due to the fact that more subscribers shared unit capacity this year than last year, ie Hungarians use mobile networks somewhat more actively than in 2019, while there has been no significant capacity expansion on Hungarian networks in the past year.  with its users, but the platform also performs measurements that try to limit the quality of certain services. Such a metric is the “video experience index”, which first appeared in the repertoire last year and measures (image) quality (bitrate), video load time and intermittent downtime (if any) on a given network, and then a 0 Scores the result on a scale of -100. This index may increase for understandable reasons in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, as it does not matter what quality can be lost on various mobile video streaming applications on mobile networks in a given country.
WE ARE GOOD IN VIDEOING
Hungary stayed here although he dropped four places to finish in ninth place. It is important to note, however, that the video experience index is not an exact metric, and there are no significant fluctuations in this list – OpenSignal even ranks Brunei 60th in the ranking with a “very good” rating, even if the quality of online videos is a consideration.  Although Speedtest.net has never made Hungary one of the top 10 speed measurement platforms due to the difference in measurement methodologies, Hungary is constantly lagging behind in the Speedtest list: While Hungary ranked 19th a year ago Hungarian mobile networks were only in the 35th place in the global index, until April of this year.
However, the world will not stop until then, and 5G developments will accelerate globally in 2020, in parallel with market projections. 5G-capable devices will also be available to him.
