SpeedTest.pl rating – results for February 2021

The first months of the new year brought another acceleration of the Internet in Poland. In February, the average data download speed of home Internet users increased by 6.6% (up to 75 Mb / s). In turn, mobile lines accelerated by 8.3% (34.6 Mb / s). The highest growth was recorded by T-Mobile (13.7%) and Play (10.4%). The beginning of 2021 is also a change in the way results are presented in our rankings.

The rating is based on February 4.2 million measurements (including 0.9 million mobile applications). This information applies to users from Poland.

Starting in 2021, we have significantly simplified the presentation of data by creating two main rating categories. General and WiFi lists are combined in a ranking of home Internet providers. It is mainly based on the results obtained from all SpeedTest.pl programs for communication via home routers. The FTTH fiber ranking is divided into subcategories in this ranking. This approach increases the readability of published information and at the same time reflects the way users use the Internet. Due to the development and popularity of Wi-Fi standards (5 and 6), WLAN wireless technology is becoming less and less a broadband speed constraint. As a result, operators are increasingly offering their customers routers that support the latest solutions in the field of Wi-Fi networks. The rating of mobile internet providers remains unchanged and covers tests conducted on SpeedTest.pl applications on Android and iOS smartphones and tablets for 3G, 4G LTE and 5G connections.

INEA customers (~ 153 Mb / s) achieved the highest data download speed. The 150 Mb / s level was also exceeded by UPC customers nationwide.
