For years the o2 network has been considered the weakest option in Germany. The massive expansion of the infrastructure is suddenly bearing fruit and the previously inviolable sequence is being turned on its head for the first time in a Germany-wide network test. A top dog has to clear second place for this.
O2 suddenly has the second best cellular network
How could that happen? Did the big promises to expand the O2 cellular network suddenly have a positive effect? At least that is what it seems if you let yourself through the network test from “Smartphone Magazin”. One is Driven a total of 20,000 kilometers through Germany and has tested the networks of Telekom, Vodafone and o2 in various regions. The following result came out:
Telekom continues to have the undisputed best mobile network in Germany. Telekom took first place both in the country and in the city. Then the big surprise. With a With a total of 283 points, o2 takes second place. In the country the network is weaker than that of Vodafone, but in the city it is almost as good as that of Telekom. This means that Vodafone only lands in third place and, at least according to this network test, has the currently worst mobile network in Germany to offer
Of course, that doesn’t automatically mean that CO2 has gotten better everywhere. In the individual disciplines that Smartphone Magazin tested is sometimes CO2 better, sometimes Vodafone. In addition, you have to look carefully at where you use the network most often. In the country, you should still use Vodafone or Telekom. In the city, however, it no longer necessarily has to be Telekom or Vodafone, where CO2 is now also a very good option.
O2 is usually much cheaper than the competition
The expansion of the o2 network is bearing fruit and can also be substantiated with concrete figures. There Cell phone tariffs from CO2 are also often much cheaper are tariffs from Vodafone or Telekom, CO2 would now be a good option again. Many prepaid customers, such as Aldi Talk, who also use this network, also benefit from this. Regardless of whether it is ranked 2nd or 3rd, it is important that the O2 network has become better and it is primarily the customers who benefit from this. And with 5G you now want to really accelerate.
