Etisalat UAE recognised fastest mobile network operator globally


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 the 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.

Etisalat is also the winner of the Speedtest Awards for both the fastest mobile network worldwide in Q1-Q2 and Q2-Q3 in 2020 and the fastest fixed broadband network in Q3-Q4 2019.

With everything going digital and online the fast network will help transform the lives of Etisalat subscribers.
