Qualcomm claims wireless dominance over Intel and Apple

Qualcomm is going on the offensive in its wireless business, attacking rival products from Intel and the Apple iPhones that integrate them.

A collection of new data from Ookla, the largest and most prominent internet-speed-testing service, shows that Android phones integrating Qualcomm QCOM, +0.80% modems have significantly better wireless performance than iPhones that are using Intel INTC, +0.77% modems.

Phones integrating Qualcomm modems show up to 53% faster typical download speeds and 103% faster speeds in “worst-case” scenarios where consumers are at the edge of the network, where signals are harder to find. This covers testing from more than one million consumer-initiated tests across both AT&T T, -0.32% and T-Mobile TMUS, -1.50% cellular networks.
