Ookla® has ranked Asiacell the 1st in network coverage among mobile network operators in 2021. The Ookla Speedtest AwardTM has been received only a few months after the Iraqi government’s 4G service official licensing in January 2021.

Iraq’s leading telecommunications company, Asiacell, demonstrated its leading status in its field once again by working hard to prove its ‘brings us together’ excellence. The mobile services mogul succeeded in being categorized as the number-one ranked carrier in Iraq for mobile network coverage by Ookla Speedtest.  Separately, it was also rated as fastest data connection by “Speedchecker”. Both Ookla Speedtest and Speedchecker are independent third parties which analyse and award mobile companies internationally.

Ookla”, the global leader in fixed broadband and mobile network testing applications and data analysis, recognized Asiacell as the carrier with the best mobile network coverage in Iraq for Q1–Q2 2021. Ookla provides reliable data of telecommunication companies’ performances in various aspects that named Asiacell as best mobile coverage in Iraq by providing network coverage in 99%+ of the Iraqi locations observed. This asserts how Asiacell provides its subscribers in Iraq with the most superior experience with the nation’s best mobile coverage.

On the other hand, Asiacell was awarded by “Speedchecker” for its mobile data speed, and it was ranked as the fastest in Iraq for Q1 and Q2 2021 Speedchecker apps and websites specialize in analyzing and measuring internet speed. Their app can be used on Android and iOS in addition to their website too. This added to Asiacell’s transparency policies and provided a way for any of their users to check the speed of data and see why an international organization and application recognize it as the fastest in Iraq.
