Key Findings

Etisalat users see the fastest overall download speeds but du wins the 5G award

Etisalat wins the Download Speed Experience award with a score of 40.1 Mbps, having secured a lead of 12.6 Mbps (45.8%) over du which scored 27.5 Mbps. However, when we look at the average 5G download speeds of our 5G users, it is du that comes on top, and wins the 5G Download Speed with a score of 313.2 Mbps — ahead of Etisalat’s 288.1 Mbps.

Etisalat wins both Video Experience awards outright

Our users on Etisalat’s network had the best video streaming experience seen in the United Arab Emirates. In fact, Etisalat wins the overall Video Experience award and also comes on top for the 5G Video Experience award. Etisalat wins in the two categories with scores of 56.7 and 76.8 on a 100 point scale, and leads of 9.9 and 4.5 points, respectively, over its rival du.

du comes ahead in Games Experience but shares the 5G award with Etisalat

Our users had the best overall Games Experience on du’s network with a score of 61.5 points, compared to Etisalat’s 57 points, which means du is the outright winner in this category. However, our users experienced no difference in the 5G Games Experience of the two operators, as they had statistically tied scores in the 74.8-76.8 point range, meaning that the two operators share that 5G award.

du leads in 5G Availability and 5G Reach

In the Coverage section, du is the sole winner of both 5G Availability and 5G Reach awards. In 5G Availability du scored 20% compared to Etisalat’s 10.5%, while du’s 5G Reach score was 5.1 points — 1.5 points higher than Etisalat’s 3.6 points. 5G Availability represents the proportion of time that 5G users had an active 5G connection, while 5G Reach measures the proportion of locations where our users observed 5G out of all the places they visited.

Etisalat wins both Excellent and Core Consistent Quality awards outright

Etisalat wins the Excellent Consistent Quality award with a 10.9 percentage points margin over second-placed du. In Core Consistent Quality, Etisalat once again beats du, but this time by a lesser margin of 9.8 percentage points. Consistent quality quantifies how often users’ experience on a network was sufficient to support common applications’ requirements. Excellent Consistent Quality analyzes the percentage of users' tests that met the minimum recommended thresholds for watching HD video, completing group video conference calls and playing games. Core Consistent Quality uses thresholds for less demanding applications.

Market Overview

In Opensignal's latest United Arab Emirates Mobile Network Experience report we analyze both the 5G experience and the overall experience together for the first time in one report. Also, we add two new awards that quantify the consistency of the experience on the country’s two national operators.

Etisalat leads across most mobile experience categories in the United Arab Emirates based on Opensignal’s awards table as it wins 10 awards outright — four awards in the Overall Experience section, three awards in the 5G Experience section, Availability as well as both Consistent Quality awards. On the other hand, du is the outright winner in Games Experience, 5G Download Speed as well as in both measures of a 5G network’s extent — 5G Availability and 5G Reach. The two operators share the remaining 5G Games Experience award.

United Arab Emirates’ mobile operators continue to explore innovative 5G solutions and use cases for businesses and consumers. In March, Etisalat announced the successful deployment and testing of a live end-to-end multi-vendor Voice over New Radio (VoNR) ecosystem, while du in November showcased a live use case of a 5G controlled robot over a private 5G standalone access network leveraging AWS and Athonet technologies.

In this report we examine the mobile network experience of the two main mobile network operators in the United Arab Emirates — du and Etisalat — over a period of 90 days starting on January 1, 2022 and ending on March 31, 2022, to see how they fared.

National Analysis

Etisalat is the outright winner of the Video Experience award with a score of 56.7 points on a 100 point scale. It wins by a convincing margin — 9.9 points (21.1%) ahead of second placed du which scored 46.8 points.

Looking at 5G Video Experience — which measures the experience of our 5G users when connected to a 5G network — we observed impressive gains compared to the overall experience measured across all mobile technologies. In fact, in 5G Video Experience Etisalat and du scored 20.1 and 25.5 points higher than their overall Video Experience scores.

Definitions

Opensignal’s Video Experience quantifies the quality of video streamed to mobile devices by measuring real-world video streams over an operator's networks. The metric is based on an International Telecommunication Union (ITU) approach, built upon detailed studies which have derived a relationship between technical parameters, including picture quality, video loading time and stall rate, with the perceived video experience as reported by real people. To calculate video experience, we are directly measuring video streams from end-user devices and using this ITU approach to quantify the overall video experience for each operator on a scale from 0 to 100. The videos tested include a mixture of resolutions — including Full HD (FHD) and 4K / Ultra HD (UHD) — and are streamed directly from the world’s largest video content providers.

In addition to Video Experience, we report on the following metrics related to video experience:

  • 5G Video Experience: The average Video Experience of Opensignal users when they were connected to an operator’s 5G network.
  • Video Experience – 5G Users: The average Video Experience of Opensignal users with a 5G device and a 5G subscription across an operator's networks. It factors in 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G video experience along with the availability of each technology.
  • 4G Video Experience: The average Video Experience of Opensignal users on an operator's 4G network.
  • 3G Video Experience: The average Video Experience of Opensignal users on an operator’s 3G network.

National Analysis

Our users had their best experience when playing multiplayer mobile games over cellular connections on du’s network. The operator scored 61.5 points on a 100 point scale, with a 4.5 point lead over second-placed Etisalat’s score of 57 points.

We observed some large gains looking at 5G Games Experience as du and Etisalat’s scores were 13.3 and 19.8 points higher, respectively, compared to the overall experience measured across all mobile technologies.

Definitions

Opensignal’s Games Experience measures how mobile users experience real-time multiplayer mobile gaming on an operator’s network. Measured on a scale of 0-100, it analyzes how our users’ multiplayer mobile gaming experience is affected by mobile network conditions including latency, packet loss and jitter.

Games Experience quantifies the experience when playing real-time multiplayer mobile games on mobile devices connected to servers located around the world. The approach is built on several years of research quantifying the relationship between technical network parameters and the gaming experience as reported by real mobile users. These parameters include latency (round trip time), jitter (variability of latency) and packet loss (the proportion of data packets that never reach their destination). Additionally, it considers multiple genres of multiplayer mobile games to measure the average sensitivity to network conditions. The games tested include some of the most popular real-time multiplayer mobile games (such as Fortnite, Pro Evolution Soccer and Arena of Valor) played around the world.

Calculating Games Experience starts with measuring the end-to-end experience from users’ devices to internet end-points that host real games. The score is then measured on a scale from 0 to 100.

In addition to Games Experience, we report on the following metrics related to games experience:

  • 5G Games Experience: The average Games Experience of Opensignal users when they were connected to an operator’s 5G network.
  • Games Experience – 5G Users: The average Games Experience of Opensignal users with a 5G device and a 5G subscription across an operator's networks. It factors in 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G games experience along with the availability of each technology.
  • 4G Games Experience: The average Games Experience of Opensignal users on an operator's 4G network.
  • 3G Games Experience: The average Games Experience of Opensignal users on an operator's 3G (e.g. UMTS/HSPA or CDMA 1X EV-DO) network.

National Analysis

Etisalat is the outright winner of the Voice App Experience award, with a score of 74.3 points on a 100 point scale. However, its margin of victory is relatively narrow, given second-placed du’s score of 72.9 points. While Etisalat placed in the Acceptable category (74-80), du’s score was just over one point shy of joining the same category and earned a Poor rating (66-74).

Definitions

Opensignal's Voice App Experience measures the quality of experience for over-the-top (OTT) voice services — mobile voice apps such as WhatsApp, Skype and Facebook Messenger — using a model derived from the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) approach for quantifying overall voice call quality and a series of calibrated technical parameters. This model characterizes the exact relationship between the technical measurements and perceived call quality. Voice App Experience for each operator is calculated on a scale from 0 to 100.

In addition to Voice App Experience, we report on the following metrics related to voice app experience:

  • 5G Voice App Experience: The average Voice App Experience of Opensignal users when they were connected to an operator’s 5G network.
  • Voice App Experience – 5G Users: The average Voice App Experience of Opensignal users with a 5G device and a 5G subscription across an operator's networks. It factors in 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G voice app experience along with the availability of each technology.
  • 4G Voice App Experience: The average Voice App Experience of Opensignal users on an operator's 4G network.
  • 3G Voice App Experience: The average Voice App Experience of Opensignal users on an operator's 3G (e.g. UMTS/HSPA or CDMA 1X EV-DO) network.

National Analysis

Our users observed the fastest average overall download speeds on Etisalat’s network — 40.1 Mbps, which was 12.6 Mbps (45.8%) faster than second-placed du’s score of 27.5 Mbps. As a result, Etisalat is the outright winner of the Download Speed Experience award.

Turning to the overall average download speeds observed by our 5G users (Download Speed Experience – 5G Users), we observed a different picture with du leading at 106.8 Mbps, which was 9.4 Mbps faster (9.6%) than what our 5G users experienced on Etisalat’s network at 97.4 Mbps. These scores show the degree of 5G’s impact on users’ mobile experience.

Definitions

Measured in Mbps, Download Speed Experience represents the typical everyday speeds a user experiences across an operator’s mobile data networks.

In addition to Download Speed Experience, we report on the following metrics related to download speeds:

  • 5G Download Speed: The average download speed observed by Opensignal users with active 5G connections.
  • Download Speed Experience – 5G Users: The average download speeds experienced by Opensignal users with a 5G device and a 5G subscription across an operator’s networks. It factors in 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G download speeds along with the availability of each technology.
  • 4G Download Speed: The average downlink speed observed by Opensignal users when they were connected to 4G.

National Analysis

Etisalat users observed the fastest average overall upload speeds — 10.3 Mbps, which means that Etisalat is the sole winner of the Upload Speed Experience award. It wins by a margin of 2.7 Mbps (35%) over du given the latter’s score of 7.6 Mbps.

Looking at the overall average upload speeds observed by our 5G users (Upload Speed Experience – 5G Users), du and Etisalat had statistically tied scores in the 14.6-15.9 Mbps range.

Definitions

Upload Speed Experience measures the average upload speeds for each operator observed by our users across their mobile data networks. Typically upload speeds are slower than download speeds, as current mobile broadband technologies focus resources on providing the best possible download speed for users consuming content on their devices. As mobile internet trends move away from downloading content to creating content and supporting real-time communications services, upload speeds are becoming more vital and new technologies are emerging that boost upstream capacity.

In addition to Upload Speed Experience, we report on five supporting metrics related to upload speeds:

  • 5G Upload Speed: The average upload speed observed by Opensignal users with active 5G connections.
  • Upload Speed Experience – 5G Users: The average upload speeds experienced by Opensignal users with a 5G device and a 5G subscription across an operator’s networks. It factors in 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G upload speeds along with the availability of each technology.
  • 4G Upload Speed: The average uplink speed observed by Opensignal users when they were connected to 4G.
  • 3G Upload Speed: The average uplink speed observed by Opensignal users when they were connected to 3G (e.g. UMTS/HSPA or CDMA 1X EV-DO).

National Analysis

Etisalat is the outright winner of the Availability award, with a score of 98.3%. This means that our Etisalat users spent the largest proportion of time connected to either 3G, 4G, or 5G. Etisalat’s rival du comes second with a score of 97.9% — less than 0.5 percentage points behind the winner’s score.

Definitions

Our availability metrics are not a measure of a network’s geographical extent. They won’t tell you whether you are likely to get a signal if you plan to visit a remote rural or nearly uninhabited region. Instead, they measure what proportion of time people have a network connection, in the places they most commonly frequent — something often missed by traditional coverage metrics. Looking at when users have a connection rather than where, provides us with a more precise reflection of the true user experience.

We also keep track of the instances that leave mobile users most frustrated: when there is no signal to connect to at all. The most common dead zones users struggle with occur indoors. As most of our availability data is collected indoors (as that’s where users spend most of their time), we’re particularly astute at detecting areas of zero signal.

Our availability metrics take a user-centric, time-based approach that complements the user-centric and geographical-based methodology used by our reach metrics.

Availability shows the proportion of time all Opensignal users on an operator’s network had either a 3G, 4G or 5G connection.

The coverage maps show the locations where we received measurements from users connecting with 3G or better mobile service. Each map provides an indication of the areas in which it is possible to obtain mobile service from that mobile operator.
