Etisalat 'world's fastest mobile network operator'

ABU DHABI, October 24, 2020

UAE's Etisalat said it has been recognised as the fastest mobile network operator worldwide in 2020 by Ookla, the global leader in fixed broadband and mobile network testing applications, data and analysis, for providing its subscribers fastest mobile speeds in the world. 
The ranking is based on analysis by Ookla of millions of tests actively initiated by customers across every network to check internet speeds using various applications on web and mobile platforms. 
The Speedtest Awards for top network providers are determined using a ‘Speed Score’ that incorporates a measure of each provider’s network speeds (download and upload) to rank network speed performance.
With a download speed of 115.89 mbps and an overall ranking in the ‘Speed Score’ at 98.78 mbps, Etisalat is the only operator globally to rank higher than 90 as per Ookla Speedtest data, said the company in a statement. 
Etisalat is also the winner of the Speedtest Awards for both fastest mobile network worldwide in Q1-Q2 and Q2-Q3 in 2020 and fastest fixed broadband network in Q3-Q4 2019, it added.
On the major recognition, Group Acting CEO Hatem Dowidar said: "This is a milestone achievement and a testament to our relentless efforts towards our strategy and vision to ‘Drive the digital future to empower societies’." 
"Our corporate strategy has enabled us to consistently push boundaries, by responding swiftly to the global digital advancements and proactively deliver cutting-edge services and solutions to our customers," remarked Dowidar, also a member of GSMA.
"We will continue to focus on creating the world’s best and leading networks across our markets to deliver long-term value to all our stakeholders," he added.
Doug Suttles, CEO and co-founder of Ookla, said: "Today, I am honoured to recognise Etisalat UAE with the fastest mobile network in the world. This is a truly momentous accolade, and one that Etisalat absolutely deserves. Etisalat is at the top of the world in terms of network speed and is officially the world's fastest mobile network."
"In addition to being awarded as the fastest mobile operator, Etisalat is also recognised with the fastest fixed broadband network in the GCC and Arab region. This is a truly historic and proud moment for the country and Etisalat," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
