Telus Named ‘Canada’s Fastest Mobile Network’ Again by Ookla
Telus says it has been crowned “Canada’s Fastest Mobile Network” by Seattle-based Ookla, winning the title for the 10th time in row and for six consecutive years.
Ookla runs its popular Speedtest, available on the web and thru a mobile app. Data from these tests run by wireless users show Telus received the top Speed Score of 91.30, with media speeds of 86.83 Mbps download and 8.92 Mbps upload.
“More than ever, Canadians value a fast, reliable connection, and the consistent recognition from independent, third-party organizations, such as U.S.-based Ookla, reinforces the superiority of TELUS’ global-leading mobile network,” said Darren Entwistle, President and CEO of Telus, in a statement.
In second place not far behind Telus was Bell, with a Speed Score of 87.78. Rogers was third with 69.94, followed by its sub-brand Fido at 67.57 and Videotron at 55.71 in fifth place. These Ookla Speed Scores are based on Q1-Q2 2022:
Ookla says 703,540 user-initiated tests were taken with the Speedtest iOS and Android app from all major mobile carriers in Canada, to determine the fastest mobile network speeds.
Tests were taken by 164,933 unique devices for the Q1-Q2 period, led by the iPhone 13 Pro Max, followed by the iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 11, iPhone 12 and iPhone XR.
Telus points out that in 2022, it also won the title of the fastest mobile network from UK-based Opensignal.
“This is the 10th consecutive time TELUS’ mobile network has earned top recognition from Ookla, and a celebration of the work our team does to keep Canadians connected to the people and information that matter most. We are extremely proud of the many ways in which our mobile network, with its global-best speeds, is facilitating critical, transformational change in respect of health, education, teleworking, the environment and the economy,” added Entwistle.
