Leading mobile services provider Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) has clinched a three-peat as the Philippines’ fastest mobile network according to Ookla, the global leader in internet testing and analysis.

“This award recognizes Smart’s commitment to delivering fast speeds to [its] customers across the Philippines. With this latest win, Smart has won the Speedtest Award for Fastest Mobile Network in the Philippines three consecutive years in a row,” said Ookla Chief Executive Officer Douglas Suttles in a statement.

Smart was first awarded as the Philippines’ Speedtest Awards Winner for mobile network speed in 2018, when it posted a Speed Score of 15.06. In the said year, Smart also achieved average download speeds of 17.24 Mbps, and average upload speeds of 8.11 Mbps.

In 2019, Smart won the Philippines’ Speedtest Awards for mobile network speed with a Speed Score of 17.4. In the said period, Smart also achieved average download speeds of 19.62 Mbps and average upload speeds of 9.45 Mbps.

In 2020, Ookla awarded Smart as the Speedtest Awards Winner in both the first and second half of the year. Just recently, Ookla awarded Smart as the Speedtest Awards Winner in Q3-Q4 2020 with a Speed Score of 24.99. Smart posted average download speeds of 20.08 Mbps, and average upload speeds of 7.42 Mbps.

Smart’s consistent network superiority is a result of its parent company PLDT’s continuous investments in the expansion of fixed and wireless networks across the country to elevate the country’s telecommunications industry and deliver world-class services to Filipinos.

Smart is at the forefront of the 5G revolution in the Philippines as the first local telco to launch 5G services nationwide last July 2020 in Metro Manila, and strategic areas in Luzon, the Visayas, and Mindanao.
