How do the nPerf maps work?

Where does the data come from?

The data is collected from tests carried out by users of the nPerf app. These are tests conducted in real conditions, directly in the field. If you'd like to get involved too, all you have to do is download the nPerf app onto your smartphone. The more data there is, the more comprehensive the maps will be!

How are updates made?

Network coverage maps are automatically updated by a bot every hour. Speed maps are updated every 15 minutes. Data is displayed for two years. After two years, the oldest data is removed from the maps once a month.

How reliable and accurate is it?

Tests are conducted on users' devices. Geolocation precision depends on the reception quality of the GPS signal at the time of the test. For coverage data, we only retain tests with a maximum geolocation precision of 50 meters. For download bitrates, this threshold goes up to 200 meters.

How can I get hold of raw data?

Are you looking to get hold of network coverage data or nPerf tests (bitrate, latency, browsing, video streaming) in CSV format to use them however you like? No problem! Contact us for a quote.

Does a PRO tool for coverage maps visualization exist ?

Yes. This tool is mainly intended for mobile operators. It has been integrated into an existing cockpit that already includes internet performance statistics from all operators in a country, as well as access to speed-test results and coverage data. These data can be visualized by applying filters by technology (no coverage, 2G, 3G, 4G, 4G+, 5G) over a configurable period (only the last 2 months for example). It's a great tool to track the deployment of new technology, monitor competitors and identify poor signal coverage areas.

What about the nPerf 5G coverage map ?

Its vocation is different from the traditional coverage maps published by nPerf.
Indeed, it allows to follow the progressive deployment of 5G in the world, with always a notion of quality of associated coverage.
However, it should be noted that certain areas where 5G has been detected are not necessarily commercially open. Indeed, beforehand, technical tests can be carried out by operators and their subcontractors. For more details on 5G coverage by operator, see traditional nPerf maps.

Regarding the collection of 5G measurements, it is done in the same way as for the previous technologies by our App users, with the difference that these users must of course be equipped with mobile and SIM card both 5G compatible…These measurements are therefore carried out in real conditions, directly in the field. If you also want to participate in the enrichment of this 5G nPerf map, all you need to do, once equipped with mobile and SIM card both 5G compatible, is to download the nPerf application on your smartphone. The more data, the more complete the maps will be!
