Our analysis of Ecuador's cities revealed a pretty outstanding performance in our metrics by one of the operators in Quito. While Claro and Movistar dominated our national awards, CNT won three of the regional medals in the capital outright. The state-owned operator won 4G Availability, Video Experience and Download Speed Experience in Quito, while it tied with Claro for Latency Experience. CNT's 4G launch in 2014 was concentrated in Ecuador's cities, and this strategy seems to have paid off, allowing it to become the dominant player in Quito in our metrics.
Our awards table in Ecuador's second-largest city Guayaquil more closely mirrored our national results. Movistar came top in 4G Availability, while Claro won our Video, Download Speed and Latency Experience awards, and the two shared the spoils in Upload Speed Experience.
Our users on Claro's network in Guayaquil should be particularly proud of their mobile Video Experience, as the operator managed a Good rating (55-65) in the city, meaning quick loading and minimal stuttering, except at higher resolutions. But our highest urban Video Experience score was on CNT's network in Quito, where the operator managed to pass the 60-point mark. While it remains some way behind its larger rivals across most of our national metrics, CNT has shown the greatest improvement of all Ecuador's operators in this report, and is on the verge of becoming a serious challenger to the dominance of its larger rivals.
