Entel streaks ahead in our speed metrics
Entel won both our Download and Upload Speed Experience awards, after tying for the download crown with Movistar in our last report on Peru. Entel managed to increase its average Download Speed Experience score by nearly 3 Mbps to reach 16.3 Mbps in our measurements and pull ahead of its rivals. Meanwhile Entel won our Upload Speed Experience award with a score of 9.2 Mbps — nearly 20% faster than its closest rival Movistar.
Entel holds its lead in a close 4G Availability race
Entel kept our 4G Availability crown with a score of 85.8% — although the operator hasn't significantly increased its score over the past six months. Rivals Claro and Movistar both increased their scores by over 2 percentage points, but not enough to catch the leader. All four of Peru's operators have now passed the 80% milestone.
Claro wins Video Experience with a Good rating
Claro won its only award in our new Video Experience category, with a score of 55.2 (out of 100). Claro was the only operator to top a score of 55, which earned it a Good rating in our Video Experience measurements. Rivals Movistar and Entel both earned Fair Video Experience rankings, while Bitel's score fell into the Poor category, meaning a typical consumer experience is characterized by frequent stalling during video playback and long loading times, even at low resolutions.
Some impressive improvements in Peru's Latency scores
Entel came top of our Latency Experience rankings with a score of 49.4ms — a 20% improvement on its closest rival Claro's score. In our 4G Latency metric, Entel and Claro saw hardly any improvement in their scores over the past six months, while Movistar's improved by over 6ms and Bitel's by over 22ms. However we saw the greatest enhancements in our 3G Latency scores, as every operator improved by over 7% while Bitel's score improved by nearly 25%.
