Ooredoo Oman has been named at the “Fastest Mobile Network” in the Sultanate for Q1-Q2 2018.
The recognition follows a series of consumer-initiated tests from Internet testing and analysis firm Ookla.
Ookla conducted the analysis via Speedtest using modern devices across all major operators in the country.
The results of the analysis by Ookla confirm that Ooredoo achieved the fastest overall mobile speeds in Oman during the time period, said the telco in a statement.
Ian Dench, Ooredoo chief executive officer, said, “We are delighted with this award; it follows our major upgrade to extend 4G coverage to 94 percent of the sultanate’s population. We want our customers to enjoy the Internet, and as Oman’s data experience leaders, we are committed to continue investing in our network.”
The Speedtest Awards for top providers in speed are determined using a Speed Score that incorporates a measure of each provider’s download and upload speed to rank network speed performance. Tests used to calculate the Speed Score come from ‘modern devices’, which are capable of connecting to the market’s fastest, generally available technology. Ooredoo’s Speed Score during the award period was 28.23.
