The latest analysis from Opensignal published its latest Mobile Network Experience Report for Malaysia indicates U Mobile as having the fastest speed for both upload and download.
The report reveals a competitive mobile operator landscape in Malaysia, with two operators – Unifi and Digi – sharing the largest award tally. Both operators win a total of seven awards — five shared and two outright.
U Mobile saw itself jumping into the lead for both overall speed awards — Download Speed Experience and Upload Speed Experience. For Download Speed Experience, U Mobile wins with a score of 39.4Mbps — an incredible increase of 21.2Mbps (115.7%) since the last report, when it placed last. U Mobile also wins Upload Speed Experience outright with its score of 9.9Mbps — due to its smaller, but still impressive, boost in score of 2Mbps (25.8%) between reports.
Unifi wins the Consistent Quality award outright with a score of 67.2%, 4.8 percentage points above second-placed Digi’s score of 62.4%. Maxis, U Mobile, Yes and Celcom finish third, fourth, fifth and last place, respectively. Consistent Quality is a measure of how sufficient the network is in supporting common mobile application requirements at a level that is ‘good enough’ for users to maintain (or complete) various typical demanding tasks on their devices.
The TM-owned mobile network also added Live Video Experience to its awards haul, winning it outright with a score of 54.7 points on a 100-point scale. This means Unifi places in the Very Good (53-58) category for Live Video Experience, the only Malaysian operator to do so this time around — the other five operators place one category lower, in Good (43-53). Unifi also now shares the Video Experience award with Digi due to their statistically tied scores of 60.5-60.8 points. Video Experience award was won by Maxis in the previous report.
Celcom retains its outright win for overall Games Experience with a score of 71.7 points, although its lead over second place has shrunk between reports. Celcom’s lead has decreased from 3.2 points ahead of Maxis in the last report, to around 1.6 points ahead of statistically tied Maxis and Unifi this time around. In addition, Celcom now joins Digi in sharing the 5G Games Experience award with their statistically tied scores of 89.3-89.7 points. All five operators rate as Excellent (85 or above) for 5G Games Experience.
U Mobile also led in terms of 5G Availability, with its score of 31.9% meaning that users with a 5G device spend almost a third of their time with an active 5G connection. Yes, which won the award outright in the previous report, now shares second place with Unifi due to statistically level scores.
