Digicel copped the 2020 Ookla Speedtest Award for Fastest Mobile Network in the Caribbean, while also picking up a raft of other individual market awards thanks to its focus on speed and coverage.

Ookla, the company behind Speedtest, is the global leader in fixed broadband and mobile network testing applications, data and analysis.

In addition to the 2020 award for Fastest Mobile Network in the Caribbean, Digicel also received country awards for 2020 Speedtest Fastest Mobile Network, 2020 Speedtest Best Mobile Coverage and 2020 Speedtest Fastest Internet Provider.

Haiti, Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago, were the recipients of the Fastest Mobile Network award; Curacao, Grenada, Nauru, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, St Barthelemy and Trinidad & Tobago won the honour of Best Mobile Coverage; and Bermuda, Dominica, Haiti, Jamaica and Turks & Caicos Islands captured Fastest Internet Provider.

Oliver Coughlan, Digicel Chief Executive Officer - Caribbean & Central America said: “We all work very hard at Digicel to provide our customers with the best service possible. We’ve made significant investments in our networks and are focused on continuous improvement. Ookla judges the best of the best networks all over the world, so the independent verification from them about the strength and reliability of our network is a testament to all the work we have put in and our commitment to our customers.”

The Speedtest Awards, presented by Ookla, are an elite designation reserved for fixed and mobile providers in a market. Based on consumer-initiated tests and background scans from Speedtest applications, Speedtest Awards represent real world network performance of the internet speeds and coverage provided to customers, which in this case resulted in Digicel being awarded Fastest Mobile Network in the Caribbean.
