Vodafone scores BEST IN TEST in P3 connect Mobile Benchmark in Spain
Orange is second, Movistar third, Yoigo takes the fourth rank
The report surveyed four networks – Movistar, Orange, Vodafone and Yoigo – using a highly sophisticated range of measurements in 19 Spanish cities, as well as 29 towns and along 8,400 kilometres of connecting roads. P3’s holistic approach to network benchmarking includes drivetests and walktests, for executing detailed voice and data measurements under controlled circumstances, as well as a sophisticated crowdsourcing approach.
Vodafone did best overall with a lead in voice and data and achieves the grade “very good” and a score of 904 out of 1,000 points. Thanks to distinct improvements, particularly in its voice results, Orange also achieves the grade “very good” ranking second with a score of 867 points. Movistar still shows a strong performance, especially in the data category, but in the overall assessment only achieves the third rank with the grade “good” and an overall score of 832 points. Yoigo shows considerable improvements over its results from previous years and also achieves the grade “good” with an overall score of 783 points.
In the crowdsourced assessment designed to augment and verify the drivetest and walktest results looks at User Download Speed and Data Service Availability. Here, Orange takes the overall lead, scoring slightly ahead of Movistar and Vodafone. Vodafone achieves the best score for User Download Speed, Orange and Movistar are on par in this category. Yoigo’s improvements are also reflected in a decent crowd score. All for Spanish networks show excellent Data Service Availability.
Hakan Ekmen, CEO P3, explains: “Our holistic approach clearly confirms, that the Spanish operators have worked hard to improve their network performance and user experience. We are happy to see some considerable enhancements compared to the results of previous years and are quite sure that our demanding benchmarks have played a role in the serious efforts taken by the Spanish operators recently.”
Following the 2018 publication in Spain, further P3 connect Mobile Benchmarks will be published in Germany, Austria, Australia, UK, Switzerland, The Netherlands and Sweden within the coming months.
