[August 2022] Comparison of communication speeds of 12 popular cheap SIM lines Fast/slow MVNO?

Cheap SIM with lower monthly smartphone charges than major mobile carriers. I’m happy that the charge is cheap, but it is said that the essential communication speed is slow. In order to find out what it actually is, we investigated the communication speed of 12 popular lines. This time, which was carried out on August 8th and 9th, 2022, the results showed that the average downlink speed of the speed test app was on a declining trend as usual.
1. [Introduction] Communication speed investigation method
Cheap SIMs tend to have slow communication speeds depending on the time of day and location. For example, during break times between 12:00 and 12:00 on weekdays, in the evening and late at night when private communications increase, and in areas where the population is extremely concentrated, such as around terminal stations in urban areas, communications are congested and line speeds are slow. easy to decline. However, the degree of this difference varies from carrier to carrier, and it can be said to be one of the important factors for comparison.

In this survey, we selected the area around Tokyo Station in Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo as the area with high population density, and the area around Sakudaira Station in Saku City, Nagano Prefecture as the contrast area. We are investigating the communication speed of a cheap SIM with 12 lines at 12:00 and 18:00, when communication is concentrated, and at 14:00, when communication is relatively low.

Considering the situation of the new coronavirus infectious disease (COVID-19), since March 2020, the survey has been continued only in the vicinity of Sakudaira Station in Saku City, Nagano Prefecture, where the author lives, but May 2022 Since then, the survey around Tokyo Station has resumed in earnest.

The date of this survey will be Monday, August 8, 2022 for the area around Tokyo Station and Tuesday, August 9, 2022 for the area around Sakudaira Station. The terminal used for the measurement is Motorola’s “moto g50 5G”.

2. What is the result of the measurement during the lunch break and around 12:00 when the speed tends to be slow?
Let’s take a closer look at the survey results. First of all, it is from the results around Tokyo Station about 12:00, which is likely to be crowded by users who are taking a break.
The overall average for the speed test app is 11.07 Mbps downstream (17.24 Mbps last month) and 8.97 Mbps upstream (6.70 Mbps last month). Looking at each line, Ymobile’s downlink speed is the fastest at 29.73 Mbps, followed by OCN mobile ONE at 22.87 Mbps and yu mobile at 21.17 Mbps. The upstream communication speed was 21.50 Mbps of mineo (A plan) the fastest.

The average app download speed is 3.48 Mbps (6.56 Mbps). Looking at each line, UQ mobile’s 8.27 Mbps was the fastest, followed by mineo (A plan) at 7.61 Mbps and Japan Communication SIM at 7.01 Mbps.
The overall average for the speed test app is 11.49 Mbps downstream (15.32 Mbps last month) and 4.58 Mbps upstream (6.10 Mbps last month). Looking at each line, UQ mobile’s downlink speed is the fastest at 51.63 Mbps, followed by Ymobile at 36.97 Mbps and BIGLOBE mobile at 15.93 Mbps. UQ mobile’s 14.97 Mbps is also the fastest uplink communication speed.

The average app download speed is 5.78 Mbps (8.18 Mbps in the same period). Looking at each line, the speed was 22.60 Mbps for Ymobile, 14.90 Mbps for UQ mobile, and 13.10 Mbps for mineo (A plan), in that order.
3. What is the measurement result at 14:00 when you can expect relatively high speed?
Next, let’s take a look at the results from around Tokyo station around 14:00, when the break time is over and the use of smartphones has calmed down and the speed has recovered.
The overall average for the speed test app is 21.50 Mbps downstream (55.36 Mbps last month) and 8.78 Mbps upstream (7.21 Mbps last month). Looking at each line, BIGLOBE Mobile’s 37.00 Mbps is the fastest, followed by Ymobile’s 33.27 Mbps and OCN Mobile ONE’s 27.80 Mbps. UQ mobile’s 21.20 Mbps was the fastest upload speed.

The overall average app download speed is 13.11 Mbps (33.25 Mbps). Looking at each line, yu mobile’s 21.24 Mbps was the fastest, followed by UQ mobile’s 18.63 Mbps, mineo (A plan) at 16.93 Mbps, and OCN mobile ONE’s 16.56 Mbps.
