What is the Ookla Speedtest Awards?

Speedtest Awards™, presented by Ookla®, are an elite designation reserved for fixed and mobile providers in a market. Based on consumer-initiated tests and background scans from Speedtest® applications, Speedtest Awards represent real world network performance and the internet speeds and coverage provided to customers.



Best Mobile Coverage in Liberia

How Coverage Score Works:

"Ookla’s Coverage Score captures both the number of locations in which an operator offers service (its footprint) and the quality of service in each location. Metrics are calculated using locations where coverage scans were contributed by Android Speedtest users. A location is an area that is equivalent to approximately 100 x 100m (about the size of a New York City block). To minimize the impact of misconfigured or underperforming devices, we require coverage scans from at least two devices at each location.
These features are determined using data from coverage scans, which capture the real-time network conditions of Android Speedtest users across the globe. An operator’s footprint is the fraction of locations within a given market where a device has access to service. Each location is assigned a score based equally on the general and 4G service. For example, if a provider offered non-4G service in a location, that location would receive a score of 1/2. The overall Coverage Score for an operator is its footprint multiplied by the average quality score across its observed locations. Further , a multiplier is applied to the Coverage Score so that it is scaled from 0 to 1000 to avoid confusion that it could represent the percentage of an area or population with coverage."

Fastest Mobile Network in Liberia

How Speed Score™ Works:

"When analyzing fastest operators, Ookla solely considers top carriers (all carriers with 3% or more of total test samples in the entire market for the full award period). We then determine the fastest carrier using Speed Score for results which incorporates a measure of each provider’s download and upload speed to rank network speed performance (90% of the final Speed Score is attributed to download speed and the remaining 10% to upload speed). The Speed Score uses a modified trimean to demonstrate the download and upload speeds that are available across a provider’s network. We take speeds from the 10th percentile, 50th percentile (also known as the median), and 90th percentile, and combine them in a weighted average using a 1:8:1 ratio, respectively. We place the most emphasis on the download speeds and median speeds as those represent what most network providers’ customers will experience on a day-to-day basis."
