Our polls have been favorable to Vodafone and MEO over NOS. Today's "Perf" speed tests confirm why customers of these two operators are more satisfied than those of NOS.
According to the results of the speed tests of the first half of the year (January 1 to June 31, 2019), Vodafone, along with MEO were the operators that offered the most internet speed to the UK’s. Both download and upload.
Unfortunately, NOS was considerably below competitors. While the Vodafone averaged 82.92Mb / s and the MEO of 78.82Mb / s The We got a mere 60.77Mb / s.

The same is true for upload speeds where Vodafone wins big with 61Mb / s. Already MEO achieved an average of 49.57Mb / s and the US only 20Mb / s. Simply unbelievable the speed discrepancy in this regard.
NOS biggest problem
The problem with NOS is how the "fiber" is installed. That is, while MEO and NOS fiber go to the customer's router, NOS fiber goes to the "base box" and then distributed by cable. That is, the quality is never the same.
It has been said in the past that NOS would change the way its installation is done and would start building its networks like Vodafone and MEO, but so far nothing has changed.
Vodafone and MEO are in the spotlight
In turn, competition for number 1 is increasing. Vodafone arrived well in the UK’s market with attractive prices and unthinkable speeds. However, MEO quickly realized that this was a service they couldn't ignore. This war between operators is perfect for customers to have better service. Hopefully this will continue for many more years.
