U.S. latency report: How did AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile perform in Q4?

While the industry awaits 5G standards that will address latency like never before, it's worth noting how network operators fare today in terms of their latency records.

FierceWireless teamed up with OpenSignal to shed some light onto the issue, with quarterly reports measuring how the various networks and network technologies stack up against one another. The latest charts from OpenSignal show how various technologies performed in the fourth quarter of 2015, including LTE, eHRPD, HSPAP and HSPA. Typically measured in milliseconds, latency that clocks in at a lower rate typically means better network performance.
