Minneapolis may be cold, but it has the fastest 4G speed among 35 major U.S. cities surveyed
Minneapolis is a cold, cold city during the winter. But when it comes to mobile data speeds, Minneapolis is a hot, hot city. Data compiled by Open Signal has discovered that during the third quarter of this year, the average download speed in Minneapolis was 21.5Mbps. Detroit was second with an average speed of 20.77Mbps. Minneapolis and Detroit were the only major stateside cities to average an LTE download speed of 20Mbps or higher during the three month period.

The slowest of the 35 major cities on the list was Las Vegas, which had an average LTE download speed of 11.65Mbps, a bit more than half the average tallied by Minneapolis. Overall, most of these major cities performed well compared to other U.S. cities. Open Signal had earlier computed that the national average in the states for 4G LTE download speed was 13.98Mbps, a speed topped by 29 of the 35 major cities. But only 14 of the 35 cities managed to top the global 4G LTE average of 16.6Mbps.

Among some well known U.S. cities, New York City averaged 16.42Mbps, Chicago 18.19Mbps and Orlando 15.91Mbps. President Trump might have noticed that  his tweets take longer to post inside the White House since Washington D.C. has an average 4G LTE download speed of 14.9Mbps.
