The FINANCIAL — Telia Company’s Swedish mobile network is the best according to a heavyweight independent survey which is published today (13 December). Telia ranks no. 1 for both mobile voice and data.
P3 Communications which is an international consulting, engineering and testing corporation, has for the first time together with connect, a German telecommunications magazine, performed tests of Swedish mobile networks.
P3 used two test cars that visited 12 large cities and 18 smaller towns in Sweden as well as connecting roads to test mobile voice and data. The tested areas cover more than 3 million people, or about 41 per cent of the Swedish population.
Best voice and data
The results show that Telia Company has the best mobile network for both voice and data in Sweden.
Anders Olsson, COO and Head of Global Services & Operations (GSO), Telia Company, says: “We have invested heavily in our Swedish mobile network to ensure that our customers have the best experience, no matter if they make a call or want to use data for uninterrupted surf. The test result is a confirmation that we are on the right track. We will now continue our efforts to ensure the best mobile network for our customers.”

P3 and connect’s tests encompassed networks belonging to Telia Company, Telenor, Tele2 and Tre. Telia Company was ranked no. 1 for both voice and data.
On its tour through 12 larger Swedish cities and 18 smaller Swedish towns, P3‘s two measurement cars carried eight Samsung S5 smartphones each. These phones permanently called each other, while the connected testing equipment registered success ratios, setup times and the speech quality of the calls. In order to simulate normal smartphone usage, data transfers took place in the background of the test calls.
P3‘s network benchmarks are widely accepted by the telecommunications industry.
