Orange cleans up in speed awards
Orange won both our Download and Upload Speed Experience awards fairly comfortably, with scores at least 13% faster than its closest rival in both categories. Vodafone was notably behind, particularly in our 4G Download Speed measurements, where its score was barely half that of Orange.
A surprise draw between Orange and WE for Video Experience
Orange and WE drew for our Video Experience award — something of a surprise since the Telecom Egypt-owned operator didn't really come close to first place in any of our other categories. All four of Egypt's operators achieved Fair scores in this metric, meaning the mobile Video Experience of our users on their network leaves much to be desired: video load times are sluggish, stalling is common and connections have trouble coping with higher-resolution formats.
Vodafone wins a close-run race in 4G Availability
Vodafone grabbed our 4G Availability award with a score of 66.6% — but Orange and Etisalat were close behind, with less than 4 percentage points separating the three operators. WE was a little way behind the pack, but all four of Egypt's key players had 4G Availability scores within 9 percentage points of the leader.
Vodafone runs away with our Latency Experience award
Vodafone scooped our Latency Experience award with a much more comfortable win than we saw in 4G Availability. The operator's winning score of 45.2ms was a clear 10ms better than closest rival Orange. Interestingly though, Orange had a superior 4G Latency score — but a combination of Vodafone's outstanding 3G Latency and 4G Availability results allowed it to win our Latency Experience crown.
