Why is this test different from other network awards?
P3 is the global leader in mobile network benchmarking. It tests more than 200 networks in 120 countries around the world. Their unique methodology measures the customer experience on a network using consumer popular applications, such as YouTube, Instagram, or Spotify. Other network tests usually use custom field-test software to measure peak speed.
On September 26, PC Mag published their “Fastest Mobile Networks Canada 2019” report, with Telus awarded fastest mobile network. Results for Rogers were also very good. They confirm that Rogers is delivering what our customers need and what current devices can utilize.
