PRESS RELEASE 55/2017
Cytamobile-Vodafone is way ahead in Speed Test
The prize for the fastest mobile telephony in Cyprus for 2017 goes to Cyta, in an official confirmation of the opinion of the market and its customers.
Specifically, OOKLA, considered to be the most reliable organisation in the world in its particular field, has evaluated, certified and honoured Cyta’s mobile telephony network as the fastest in Cyprus.
The evaluation was conducted via a SpeedTest App, which is the globally most popular and independent online measurement, among the thousands of measurements that were carried out in in Cyprus during the period April-September 2017, and revealed Cyta’s huge dominance where speeds are concerned.
According to the OOKLA evaluation data, Cyta’s mobile network is the fastest in Cyprus in every technology category from 2G to 4G.
The OOKLA Speed Test, which carries out more than 5 million measurements around the world every day, via 2,500 servers, can compare speeds and line quality to connections including local and international, fixed and/or mobile Internet providers.
The tests in Cyprus registered an average download speed of 34.12Mbps for Cytamobile-Vodafone customers, as against 16.75Mbps and 14.80Mbps for other networks.
This significant award sets the standard for the whole of the country’s telecommunications sector. At the same time, it confirms the reliability of Cyta’s network and shows the positive results of the Organisation’s strategy of constantly upgrading its network and services for the benefit of consumers and business.
On the occasion of this latest recognition, it is worth noting that Cyta has been providing fast Internet everywhere for some time now, with 99.5% geographic coverage for its 3G technology and 79% for its 4G technology.
Furthermore, in May, it introduced the 4.5G high-speed network, with a maximum speed of up to 525 Mbps, which it recently upgraded to reach up to 700Mbps, making Cyta’s network the most technologically advanced in Cyprus and one of the world’s premium networks.
