According to our latest Mobile Experience Report for Chile, WOM recorded the highest percentage for “basic” consistent quality, as Entel, which has pledged to invest nearly $600 million in Chile and Peru this year, scored highest for “excellent” consistent quality, representative of more demanding use cases such as streaming HD video, and also lead speeds and latency across the country.
WOM and Entel lead consistent quality
Between January and March, WOM scored the highest overall percentage for “basic” consistent quality with a percentage score of 98% - proving its network is suitable for performing tasks like browsing web pages, internet messaging and social networking the majority of the time.
