Vatsim is known to be a strong network for US, but how does it look for the EU compared to IVAO? As I am mostly flying within EU, especially Germany, I wanted to know, which network would deliver the best online experience in terms of ATC coverage as well as traffic density in this area.
So I did a comparison of the two networks for some weeks. Here are the results. I hope, it's helpful.
A few comments:
- The data is too small to call it statistically representative
- I only looked at the coverage and not at any other qualitative aspects (like professionalism of the controllers)
- Focus was on EU and especially Germany
