The company awarded with the Speedtest Award™

Fastweb is the fastest mobile operator in Italy according to Ookla, the world leader in testing applications and data analysis for fixed and mobile networks, which developed Speedtest®. Ookla awarded Fastweb with the prestigious Speedtest Award™ for providing the fastest mobile network speed in the third and fourth quarter of 2022.

In the second half of the year, Ookla compared the results of over 292 thousand tests carried out by Fastweb customers in Italy with the Speedtest mobile apps, for iOS and Android devices, and calculated the "Speed Score" of each operator. Fastweb's mobile network achieved the best performance in terms of speed, with an average value of 73.17 Mbps for download and 12.45 Mbps for upload, totaling a combined "Speed Score" of 68.27, the highest registered in Italy.

Just three years after the Ministry of Economic Development issued the general authorization as an infrastructure mobile operator, Fastweb has achieved an important recognition which confirms its positioning as a converging player and the company's technological leadership at the service of the country's digital transformation. Also through the development of the 5G mobile network, which enables ever faster, more immediate and functional communication for the dissemination of high-performance new generation mobile services.

"The Speedtest Awards, presented by Ookla, are a prestigious recognition reserved for the fastest and best performing fixed and mobile broadband operators in the world", commented Doug Suttles, CEO of Ookla. "We are delighted to award Fastweb with the award for the fastest network in Italy.This result attests to the high performance of the operator in the last two quarters of 2022, based on Ookla's rigorous analysis of measurements made by consumers with Speedtest”.

“This recognition is proof of how investments in infrastructure make a difference. The decision to constantly invest in innovation and proprietary networks is the differentiating element that allows us to offer high performance and quality services to our customers and that has allowed us to achieve 37 consecutive quarters of growth, in total contrast with the market", said Alberto Calcagno, CEO of Fastweb.
