Smart Communications, Inc. continues to lead the Philippines' 5G revolution, having been named the 'Most Reliable 5G Mobile Operator' in the most recent report by Ookla.

Smart earned this honor by achieving the highest scores in 5G Consistency and 5G Availability in Q2 2021, according to Ookla's Speedtest Intelligence data. According to Ookla, 5G Consistency measures the percentage of a provider's users who reach minimum download and upload speeds, whereas 5G Availability measures the network whose users spend the most time on 5G.

Consistent and available 5G network
Smart topped 5G Consistency with a score of 89.78 percent versus Globe’s 78.15 percent. Smart also led in 5G Availability with a score of 14.67 percent versus Globe’s 11.86 percent

Philippines' fastest 5G network
Prior to this, Ookla also cited Smart as the Philippines’ Fastest 5G Mobile Network in Q1-Q2 2021, with median download and upload speeds that are twice as fast as its closest rival.

Smart led in download speeds with 220.66 Mbps versus Globe’s 103.22 Mbps. Smart also edged out the competition in terms of upload speeds with 20.61 Mbps versus Globe’s 8.07 Mbps. Smart also reasserted its dominance as the fastest mobile network in the Philippines for four years in a row now.

Since Smart launched the country’s first 5G commercial service last year, the telco has fired up over 4,000 5G sites in more than 3,000 areas across the country, making Smart the first, fastest, and widest 5G network in the Philippines.

Smart’s 5G network 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.
