Vodafone praises O2 survey which proves it has fastest network


Vodafone has praised an O2 survey which showed it had the fastest mobile internet browsing in the UK.

The survey, which was commissioned by O2, showed Vodafone to have the quickest web access speed in five cities in the UK. O2 was the fastest in London, while 3 was the slowest operator, beating the other networks in only three UK cities.

Vodafone CEO Guy Laurence said: ‘This week’s independent study by O2 is a welcome endorsement of Vodafone having the best network in the UK.’

He added: ‘We’re seeing continued high demand for our range of smartphones, including the iPhone, driven by customers enjoying a great experience from our outstanding network.’

Earlier this week, O2 announced it was ‘seeing the benefits’ of a £30m investment made before Christmas, after the survey showed the operator to have the fastest network in London.

The tests, taken in January 2010, saw O2’s network offer the fastest web page access experience in London at 1.7 seconds – over 30% quicker than the slowest operator, according to the testing company SIRODA.

Outside London, the fastest web speed was shared across all the big five networks.

The survey was independently verified by the British Approvals Board for Telecommunications.
