Orange Egypt Awarded by Ookla’s Speedtest Application as the Fastest Network in Egypt
During Cairo ICT 2018, Orange Egypt was awarded by Speedtest as the fastest network in Egypt, with data speed matching international standards and superior to all other networks in the country. This assessment, based on network tests taken with Speedtest during Q2 and Q3 of 2018, entitles Orange Egypt to claim it operates the fastest network in Egypt and use the commercial rights of Ookla in its campaigns.
The efficiency and the speed of mobile networks in Egypt have been tested through a number of standards based on data resulted from tests by the internet users. According to such tests, Ookla’s Speedtest application measures the speed of operators in a market and based on rigorous analysis determines which performs fastest in the award period.
On this occasion Eng. Yasser Shaker, CEO and Managing Director of Orange Egypt, said: "The Company has earned this award to become the fastest network in Egypt based on global standards. This award is a result of efforts and investments amounting EGP 4 billion during the current year to increase the efficiency of the network and its infrastructure”.
For his part, Adam Keating, Ookla’s Director of Sales EMEA said “Today we award Orange based on the Results of Q2 and Q3”.
“By winning this award Orange again, demonstrates their outstanding commitment to delivering a strong network and fast speeds to their customers across Egypt”. Added Adam
