PLDT’s wireless unit Smart Communications, Inc. is still the Philippines’ fastest and best mobile network, according to the latest report by Ookla.

After making history as the first and only Philippine mobile operator to win Ookla’s Best Mobile Network award for the Q1-Q2 2022 reporting period, Smart set another record for clinching the award in the firm’s report covering Q3-Q4 2022.

To clinch this citation, Smart won both the Fastest Mobile Network and Best Mobile Coverage awards within the same reporting periods of Ookla. 

Smart bagged the ‘Fastest Mobile Network’ with a Speed Score of 62.3, while its closest competitor posted 36.36.  

To win this category, Smart posted a median download speed of 31.04Mbps and a median upload speed of 6.8Mbps, while its closest competitors posted a median download speed of 20.22Mbps and a median upload speed of 5.13Mbps.    

Smart also dominated the ‘Best Mobile Coverage’ category with a Coverage 795, surpassing its closest competitor’s Coverage Score of 757. The Coverage Score captures both the number of locations in which an operator offers service (its footprint) and the quality of service in each location, according to Ookla.    

Ookla’s report also showed that Smart outpaced competitors in key cities across the country, being the Fastest Mobile Network in Quezon City, Cebu City, and Davao City.
