Smart bags Best Mobile Video Experience award from Ookla® – INQUIRER.net

Following its back-to-back awards as the Philippines’ fastest 5G mobile network, PLDT mobile services arm Smart Communications Inc. (Smart) has been recognized anew for delivering the Best Mobile Video Experience across all mobile technologies, according Ookla®, the global leader in mobile and broadband network intelligence.
Ookla declared Smart as the winner of the Best Mobile Video Experience award with a Video Score™ of 65.75 based on its analysis of Speedtest Intelligence® data covering Q3-Q4 2021 from 54,894 user-initiated tests. Its closest competitor registered a Video Score of 60.
Measured on a scale of 0 to 100, Ookla’s Video Score considers the real-world experience of users while streaming videos, such as watching on a website or a streaming app.
To score consumer video experience, Ookla evaluates five components, including the percentage of tests where users failed to play a video, the average waiting time of users to start a video, the quality of video, the percentage of tests where the video stalled, and the percentage of rebuffering among those who experienced a stalled video.
