Competition was high in our city-level analysis, with over half of our awards being tied between two or more operators. And nowhere was this more obvious than in 4G Availability, where we saw ties in all three cities. The scores we recorded were impressive, as our users enjoyed 4G Availability over 85% on all networks in all three cities, with Claro in Arequipa becoming the first Peruvian operator to pass the 90% milestone.
In our speed metrics, it was Movistar's turn to break barriers, as it scored over 20 Mbps in Download Speed Experience in Trujillo. The operator was held to a draw in this city by Claro and tied with Entel in Arequipa — but Entel won our award outright in the capital Lima. National leader Entel was more dominant in Upload Speed Experience, winning in both Arequipa and Lima and drawing with Movistar in Trujillo.
It was a similar story in Video Experience, where national winner Claro also came top in two cities but was held to a tie in Arequipa by Movistar. Claro's winning score in Trujillo saw the operator achieve a Very Good (65-75) Video Experience rank — meaning our users on its network will enjoy fast loading and minimal stalling, even at higher resolutions. This score, along with other records broken such as 90% 4G Availability, attest to the rapidly-maturing mobile network experience in Peru. The country impressed in our recent global
State of Mobile Network Experience report — coming top out of all Latin American countries for 4G Availability — and our latest analysis suggests things will only get better.
