Hrvatski Telekom has won the Ookla® Speedtest Awards™ for Best Mobile Network, Fastest Mobile Network, and Best Mobile Coverage in Croatia* for the fifth year in a row.
These awards are the result of a six-month detailed research during which Ookla®, a global leader in internet access analysis and testing, analyzed over 244 thousand user-initiated tests on Speedtest iOS and Android mobile apps, as well as the results of over 214 million scans at 187,732 locations of all mobile operators in Croatia.
Hrvatski Telekom's mobile network achieved the best Speed Score™ result of 120.91, a 24% improvement over the result in the last six months of 2022, and it is also the best Speed Score™ result ever recorded for testing all generations of mobile networks in Croatia. HT also had the best Coverage Score™ result, further solidifying its leadership position in this segment. These historically best results directly reflect the further improvement in network quality and the best user experience that HT provides.
"After the HAKOM survey early this year, we witness another confirmation of our mobile network's quality and leading status. Our continuous investments, construction, and expansion of the gigabit 5G network coverage areas clearly impact the growth of Speed Score™ results, which reflects in the increased quality and speed of accessing mobile internet services for our users. This is also a great recognition of our employees' commitment to the design, construction, development, and optimization of all mobile network components," said Boris Drilo, a Management Board member and Chief Technology and Chief Information Technology Officer of Hrvatski Telekom.
With the investment of 135.3 million euros, which enabled Hrvatski Telekom to secure the largest share of the RF spectrum in this year's auction and solidified its leading position in all three bands, HT will continue to provide users with the highest quality mobile service and the best user experience over the next 15 years.
