The benchmark will rank each network operator and determine which one will achieve the “Best in Test” accolade. Furthermore, the report will reveal how each operator has developed in performance over the past year, whilst measuring consumer expectations and identifying what gaps need to be addressed.
All benchmarking and evaluation is based on the independent and comprehensive P3 framework. The operators will be ranked according to the P3 Score. Reflecting the company’s unique holistic approach, the measurements combine drive testing, railway testing and walk testing with crowdsourced data of countless billions of real customer experiences. P3 matches in-depth network quality and performance analysis with real end-user experience. The P3 Score is applied across over 80 countries worldwide and has been established as the de facto industry standard for many years.
“With our measurement and scoring methodology, we can objectively and transparently compare the performance of mobile networks against each other around the world, and, across operators. This helps network operators to better understand the capability of their networks and demonstrates how well they are delivering wireless connections”, says Hakan Ekmen, CEO, P3 communications.
The P3 connect Mobile Benchmark is completely independent combining the expertise of P3, the industry’s advocate and global authority regarding measuring network performance, with more than 25 years of editorial experience and testing knowledge of connect, that is regarded as a leading consumer authority in Europe.
The independent benchmark methodology of P3 assures a fair, transparent and neutral evaluation of the networks under test. The benchmark is positioned to be a unique measure for management and supervisory boards to compare their networks with others, and for customers to make better decisions for their subscriptions.
