Study: AT&T scores fastest mobile data overall & in 3 of 4 US regions

PC Magazine has done an exhaustive test of mobile Internet speeds and relability throughout the United States, and has found “AT&T was the fastest (albeit the least consistent) of the four nationwide carriers.”

Not only did AT&T score highest overall, it also beat out all other carriers in 3 of the 4 US regions (covering 18 cities) that PC Magazine tested in. The study also tested 4G networks as well, but did not test voice calls (the main complaint of AT&T/iPhone customers).

This comes just one day after AT&T shook up the mobile industry in the US (and upset a lot of iPad 3G owners in the process) by ditching their unlimited data plans. The irony…

Here are the tables that PC Magazine put together to show the results of the tests:

National

Northeast

Central
