Monaco Telecom has been ranked as the world’s best mobile telephony operator worldwide. The 4GMARK measuring tool judges the quality of connections using smartphones in terms of performance and reliability.
Usability is measured in terms of uploading and sending attachments, navigation and video streaming. This barometer of mobile Internet performance is published each month according to data collected by users themselves.
While Monaco Telecom – which is owned by the French entrepreneur Xavier Niel and the Monaco Government – came first out of 290 operators in the month of January, France’s Orange ranked 23rd, SFR 48th, Bouygues 49th and Free in 112th place.
Martin Peronnet, Monaco Telecom’s General Director, said: “These results reflect the daily commitment and investment of Monaco Telecom to offer the best performance and the best quality of service for our subscribers and visitors to the Principality.”
Mr Peronnet added that given that the topography of the Principality is rather difficult and heavily built-up, it is always a welcome challenge for the company’s workforce to raise the levels of performance.
