Smart ranks as Global Leader for 5G Video Experience 

If you’re planning to do some serious online series catch-up this weekend or preparing your survival kit for a weekend movie marathon, your must-haves should include a Smart signal. Here’s why. 

High definition entertainment binge-watching gets a boost from Smart Communications as the mobile services provider was named Global Leader for 5G Video Experience as well as being recognized for 5G Global Impact across all four metrics of 5G Video Experience, Games Experience, Download Speed & Upload Speed, said the latest Opensignal report. 

With most Filipinos given time on their hands to choose the best entertainment content online, it’s helpful to note that Smart is the only Philippine operator in Opensignal’s roster of 5G Global Leaders.  

As a 5G Global Leader in Video Experience, Smart recorded a score of 81.6 Smart and is even ranked alongside other 5G Global Leaders, such as South Korean national operators — SK Telecom, KT and LG U+, AIS in Thailand, and other operators from Hong Kong and Taiwan. 

This is the first time Opensignal has ranked 5G operators globally by assessing their real-world 5G mobile network experience. Notably, across all the video 5G Global Winners and 5G Global Leaders networks users reported an Excellent (75 or above) 5G Video Experience. 

According to the online report, Opensignal’s 5G Video Experience uses a combination of real-world measurements of video streams from smartphone users over an operator's 5G network — including picture quality, stall rate, and loading time — to reflect users’ perceived video experience using an International Telecommunication Union (ITU) derived approach.
