National carrier Telus has been dubbed Opensignal’s top operator in Canada for the third year in a row.

Opensignal, the independent global standard for analyzing consumer mobile experience, compared the user experience for consumers of Bell, Telus and Rogers (and regionally Videotron and Freedom Mobile) based on data from everyday Canadian consumers.

According to OpenSignal’s August Mobile Network Experience Report, which examined over a billion measurements across 177,536 devices from April 1 to June 29, 2020, Telus is the operator to beat across multiple categories.
