Fastweb is confirmed as Italy's fastest mobile operator for the second time in a row, 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 and the first half of 2023.

In the first half of 2023, Ookla compared the results of 294,622 tests conducted by Fastweb customers in Italy using the Speedtest mobile apps, for iOS and Android devices, and calculated each operator's "Speed Score." The mobile network achieved an average value of 97.84 in download and 12.64 Mbps in upload, with a combined "Speed Score" of 91.31, the highest reported in Italy 30 % higher than the second ranked operator.

With this second award, Fastweb consolidates its positioning as a converged player and its technological leadership for the country's digital transformation, including through the development of the 5G mobile network capable of enabling high-performance next-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 and the first half of 2023, based on Ookla's rigorous analysis of measurements made by consumers with Speedtest”.

"This recognition certifies the primacy of our mobile network as well as the robustness of our infrastructure strategy," said Walter Renna, Fastweb's Chief Product Officer. "The decision to constantly invest in innovation and proprietary networks allows us to differentiate ourselves from the market and positions us as a leading company in offering high-performance, quality services to our customers."
