According to the Ookla analysis of Speed Intelligence data, Smart Communications, Inc. is the fastest mobile network for Apple, Samsung, and Android devices for Q3 2022.
The report reveals that the users of Android, Apple, and Samsung in the Philippines experienced between 35 to 75% faster speeds while connected to the Philippine mobile telco.
“Speed has always been the key metric of customer experience especially now that all urban areas in the country have mobile coverage. Having the fastest speeds gives Smart subscribers the best customer experience and game-changing advantage as they go about their work or school, grow their business, or enjoy their daily dose of entertainment. The latest Ookla figures reaffirm Smart as the Philippines’ superior mobile network, which puts us in the best position to empower Filipinos to live more in an increasingly digital age.”
