Cable Bahamas Group Takes Home Two Speedtest Awards
ALIV and REV recognized internationally for fixed and mobile networks
Nassau, The Bahamas (March 25, 2022) – Ookla® awarded ALIV and REV the Speedtest AwardsTM for Fastest Mobile Network and Fastest Fixed Network respectively based on Q3-Q4 2021 performance. Ookla is recognized as the global leader in network intelligence and connectivity insights. Ookla’s Speedtest is internationally respected as the “definitive” way to test the speed and performance of internet connection, and the company receives more than ten million unique user tests performed daily.
“We feel confident as The Bahamas’ newest mobile network receiving the prestigious Fastest Mobile Network award from Ookla,” said ALIV CEO John Gomez. “Our network has proven its reliability and speed consistently over the years, now we have independent research and testing that confirms that we are providing the best for our customers. We’re looking forward to continuing to provide a world-class network as we implement exciting improvements in the near future.”
ALIV strengthened its network throughout The Bahamas during Hurricane Dorian and expanded its network and retail locations throughout the Family Islands in the past few years. The Speedtest results confirmed ALIV as the Fastest Mobile Network in The Bahamas with an outstanding Speed Score of 33.58.
Connectivity remains the cornerstone of REV’s service offering, with the company retaining a two-thirds share of the Broadband market. While the REV network experienced the most significant sustained surge in residential Internet traffic due to the in-home demands of the pandemic, continued investments in the network safeguarded REV’s position as the Fastest Fixed Network in The Bahamas.
“REV is focused on providing the fastest and best network for our customers and receiving the Fastest Fixed Network award for The Bahamas reassures us that we’re moving in the right direction,” said Cable Bahamas Group CEO Franklyn Butler. “We have won this award many times since opening in 1995 and receiving it again this year continues to encourage our team as we move forward with exciting endeavors in 2022.”
For fixed networks, Ookla assesses the fastest speeds attained across a given network, regardless of the performance tier. Ookla considers tests that are taken on various Speedtest applications that connect to a fixed network and analyzes them based on Speed Score. For mobile network winners, Ookla assesses the average of test results taken using Modern Chipsets. Modern Chipsets include all mobile tests, regardless of connection technology used, as long as they are taken on devices that are identified as being capable of achieving the fastest speeds available in a market. Each top carrier for mobile and fixed accounts for at least 3% of the sample size in the geographic area.
