Ookla hails Smart as ‘Most Reliable 5G Mobile Operator’ for Q2 of 2021

Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) has been recognized as the Most Reliable 5G Mobile Operator for Q2 2021 in the country according to Ookla, the global leader in internet testing and analysis.

As earlier reported by Ookla, Smart is also the fastest 5G network for the period Q1-Q2 2021, and the country’s fastest mobile network for the fourth year in a row, based on analysis by Ookla of tests taken with Speedtest covering the first half of 2021.

Aside from the Ookla recognition, Smart also scored a rare sweep in Opensignal’s April 2021 Philippines Mobile Network Experience Awards, beating the competition across all metrics in three essential aspects of service: Coverage (4G Coverage Experience, 4G Availability), Speed (Download and Upload Speed) and Experience (Games, Video and Voice app).

This level of performance is supported by parent company PLDT’s fiber network, which is the country’s most extensive at more than 524,000 kilometers as of end-June.

PLDT and Smart’s relentless push to provide connectivity for all is aligned with the group’s long-standing commitment to help the Philippines attain the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, particularly SDG #9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure.
