The Ookla Speed Test Index has ranked Qatar as number one in the world for mobile speeds

Qatar has been ranked number one in the world for mobile speeds, according to the Ookla Speed Test Index.

The Ookla Speed Test Index compares Internet speed data from around the world on a monthly basis.

Data for the index comes from the hundreds of millions of tests taken by consumers using Speedtest every month.

The results, which are available to view via the Ookla website, show that Qatar has the fastest mobile Internet service in the world, with average download speeds of up to 63.22Mbps, significantly faster than the 23.54Mbps average.

Waleed al-Sayed, Chief Executive Officer at Ooredoo, said: “This result from Ookla demonstrates Qatar is truly number one for mobile data services.

“We know that customers want a 24/7 connection wherever they are in Qatar, which is why Ooredoo has invested in making sure our Internet has the best coverage in the country – so everyone can enjoy the Internet.”

“We vow to continue to push our network forward, in terms of coverage and technology, so Qatar is continually the best in the world,” he added.
