Hrvatski Telekom (HT) achieved the highest data score and the highest rating for its service of all the networks in Croatia in the tests ran by the company P3 Communications. HT was therefore awarded a P3 “Best in Test” certificate, an internationally accepted proof of network quality.
The tests were carried out in the period between June 9 and 18 and HT scored 776 out of 1,000, significantly more than its direct competitors.
“HT is truly a leader in the Croatian telecommunications market, and that is something that we have achieved and maintained through continuous investments in the network. We are pleased that this independent testing has confirmed the top quality of our mobile network. The renowned certificate that we have been awarded can serve as a good and helpful guideline to our present and future users. We will continue with our investments; we keep expanding our mobile network and have thus placed HT in the upper echelon of telecoms across the EU,” said Thorsten Albers, Member of the Management Board and Chief Technical and Chief Information Officer.
The comprehensive tests by P3 Communications have shown that HT achieved the highest score when it comes to download and upload speeds, and voice service quality in big cities.
P3 communications is the leading European company for consulting and services in the telecom industry. For years now they have been conducting the so-called Netztest in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, and it has become a renowned telecom benchmark. The certificates awarded by P3 have been accepted as impartial and representative results of mobile networks’ tests, seeing as they are based on a real comparison of all the competitors in a market.
HT will continue with investments in building fast internet infrastructure. This year's planned investments amount to more than HRK 1.3bn, which is by 25% more than in 2014. Earlier this year HT became the first and only telecom in Croatia to achieve twice as fast mobile internet access speed, raising it from 75 Mbit/s to 150 Mbit/s. By year-end, HT’s mobile network coverage with speeds of up to 150Mbit/s is expected to exceed 60% of the Croatian population.
