Speedtest by Ookla, one of the most definitive ways to test speed and performance of any internet connection, has declared Telenor Norway as the fastest mobile network in the world for the year 2018. Interestingly, the same operator was adjudged as the fastest one based on second quarter measurements from the same year.
Not to mention that since its inception in 2006, over 20 billion tests have been undertaken by Speedtest around the globe so far. Ookla confirmed that over 500,000 customers initiated a Speedtest in Norway in 2018 and Telenor registered the highest average download speed with 71.97.
Speaking about the achievement, Bjørn Ivar Moen, Acting CEO of Telenor Norway, said:
“For more than a century, Telenor has been building a solid foundation in order to deliver the very best services possible. However, our country continues to challenge us with its vast mountains and deep fjords. That is why we’re especially proud of these results. We have ambitious expansion plans moving forward and these will continue throughout 2019.
The telco further said:
“The fact that mobile customers themselves have tested the speed under conditions they normally use their mobile phones, makes these tests extra valuable and reliable. The average speed from all of these measurements were then compared with corresponding numbers from other mobile operators around the world.”
Official source from Telenor claim that their data traffic across the globe is increasing 30 to 40 percent every year. To meet these growing demands, the organization has set its goal clear: to slowly phase out 3G country-by-country and increase the capacity of the 4G networks.
It is worth mentioning here that despite Telenor’s impressive performances throughout the world, Jazz is still the fastest mobile network within Pakistan.
