There are plenty of internet speed test apps out there, but OpenSignal and its sister app Meteor just received some important updates that let their users see how their carrier’s 5G network coverage map compares to reports from the Internet. crowd. You know, in real life.

Coverage map screens on each app now have a filter for 5G networks where users can see a graph of speed test reports for the carrier or carriers of their choice – OpenSignal lists AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon while Meteor adds the dying Sprint and potentially resurgent Boost Mobile (that’s mostly on the back of T-Mobile’s network at the moment). Tap a dot to view the most recent upload, download, and latency statistics for that particular area.

Users can generate their own map point by performing their own 5G speed test. Apps are able to detect which radios the phone is using for speed tests – here’s a reminder that the network indicator in the status bar doesn’t always tell the truth about your actual connection.

You can download either app or both from the Play Store or grab Meteor or Opensignal from APK Mirror on their respective hyperlinks.
