Less dense cities likely to have higher avg performance The cities with top performance are not very dense compared to the largest cities so there are less users per site. Until carriers start to focus on capacity management rather than just coverage, such as infill with more LTE sites within a zone, mid-dense cities will probably avg better than larger denser cities.
But even so, KC FTW.

Right as you've alluded to, it's nothing to do with largeness, it's density that will affect speeds. It's amazing how multiplex connections are influenced by how many users there are in a small space...
