GLOBE Telecoms announced that they topped the latest report of the OpenSignal in terms of 5G video experience, 5G upload speed and core consistent quality as it continues to boost the mobile experience of its customers. The tests confirmed that based on Opensignal’s Mobile Network Experience Report for October 2022, “Globe users have continued to enjoy the best available experience when streaming mobile video over 5G (fifth generation) connections.” Globe scored a 73.5 in 5G video experience, edging out the nearest competitor’s 68.4. It also achieved 5G upload speed supremacy nationwide, with a score of 12.8 Mbps (megabits per second), an increase of 1.8 Mbps, booting out competition with a 1.4 Mbps lead. It led outright in 5G upload speed in five out of the seven regions where 5G experience was analyzed while sharing the win with competition in Western Visayas. “Globe users saw the greatest improvement in their overall experience when playing multiplayer mobile games over cellular connections since our last report,” OpenSignal said. The Ayala-owned telco also bagged the Core Consistent Quality award with a score of 76.9 percent, beating competitor scores of 76.4 percent and 75.6 percent. They said that the consistent quality measures how often users’ experience on a network was sufficient to support common application requirements. They also said that they were either an outright or joint winner in all seven regions for the said category. “5G connectivity is growing in importance as the needs of the people change. We continuously expand and upgrade our infrastructure to accommodate new technologies like 5G for our customers to reap the benefits of a 1stWorldNetwork,” Darius Delgado, head of Globe consumer mobile business, said.
