Smart Communications Inc. has been recognized anew for providing the best broadband coverage by global benchmarking company umlaut.
It won the ‘Best in Test’ award for having the best-rated internet coverage, user download experience and latency experience, putting Smart in the best position to deliver superior network services.
“This citation not only reinforces Smart’s superiority in 5G and LTE network performance, but further affirms our relentless push to provide world-class connectivity,” said Alfredo S. Panlilio, PLDT Inc. and Smart Communications president and chief executive said.
Smart posted an overall score of 777 out of a maximum of 1,000 points in umlaut’s benchmarking survey. This score includes Smart’s performance in terms of broadband coverage, download speed, and latency, which refers to the time it takes for data to make a round trip through the network.
For their extensive analysis, umlaut tested and measured 722 million samples from 871,000 users over 6 months between April and September this year.
