Telekom Romania mobile network has achieved the highest score in data services by independent audit company P3 communications.

Following performance testing of all mobile networks in Romania conducted by P3 communications in August this year, Telekom Romania achieved highest score, of 508 of 600, in mobile data services. P3 Score represents a widely accepted and internationally applicable scoring method to assess network quality and performance.

The network expansion – on both fixed and mobile segments – has been a key priority for us over the last two years. We more than doubled our LTE coverage in less than one year, continued our initiatives to modernize and optimize our mobile networks and accelerated the roll-out plans so as to offer Telekom customers a better experience using our services, every day. We can now clearly see the results of our efforts, which combined intelligent design, careful planning and successful execution. This certification confirms that we have made the right steps in delivering on our strategy to provide our customers best-in-class services and an enhanced experience,” said Miroslav Majoros, CEO Telekom Romania.

The performance testing campaign was conducted between 11-31 August 2017 on a representative sample at the national level and covered all the geographical and administrative typologies such as cities (including Bucharest, Timisoara, Cluj-Napoca, Iasi, Constanta, Suceava, Braila, Tulcea), towns (Aiud, Turda, Pascani, Vaslui, Cernavoda, Tecuci, Sebes, Dej, among many others) and connected roads, selected by P3 communications for this purpose.

The certificate demonstrates strong performance of Telekom Romania’s mobile data network on various key indicators that predict superior customers’ experience in using Telekom’s data services.

Thus, Telekom Romania achieved the best YouTube video performance overall (aggregated cities, towns, and roads) by the average shortest time before users’ visualizing the video on the screen when using Telekom Romania’s mobile data network.

At present Telekom Romania’s 4G network covers 98% of the urban population and 83% of the total population (urban and rural). In addition, Telekom customers that are not located in the 4G areas can enjoy the 4G Experience, with an advanced connection based on 3G HSDPA dual carrier technology that allows speeds of up to 43.2 Mbps network wide.
