Personal still holds the lion’s share of awards. In addition to successfully defending its five outright wins from the last Opensignal report, the operator has also picked up a second joint win, as it has statistically tied with Claro for the Voice App Experience award. As a result, Personal is the only operator in Argentina to win an award outright. Claro has the second best showing with two joint wins to its name — Games Experience and Voice App Experience.
In addition to its impressive performance in this report, Personal has consistently excelled in a number of mobile network experience categories. In all of our reports from December 2016 and onward, our users in Argentina have observed the fastest average download speeds on its network. Personal is also the only winner of both the Video Experience and Upload Speed Experience awards since Opensignal first launched them in Argentina back in the June 2019 report. It has won every 4G Availability award outright since December 2017. Finally, Personal is the only operator to win the 4G Coverage Experience award, since its addition to our Argentina mobile network experience reports in June 2020.
Now 5G is arriving in Argentina the mobile network experience is set to change and improve, as Opensignal has seen with 5G in other countries. Personal launched its 5G network using dynamic spectrum sharing (DSS) in Buenos Aires and Rosario (with five sites apiece) in early February.
In this report, we've analyzed the mobile network experience of Argentina’s three national operators — Claro, Movistar and Personal — in the 90 day period starting on August 1, 2021 and ending on October 29, 2021, to see how they measure up. We have used 5G measurements in addition to those from previous generations of mobile network technology when determining the overall scores for each award category.
