It is our pleasure to present Cyta with the award for Fastest Mobile Network in Europe. This recognition is testament to their exceptional performance in Q2-Q3 2022 based on Ookla's rigorous analysis of consumer-initiated tests taken with Speedtest”.

The Sales Director of Ookla®, Mr. Tom Opaczyk, presented to the attendees how the networks are evaluated and noted that "Europe's Fastest Mobile Network" for top providers in speed, was determined by evaluating each provider's Speed Score™ in Q2-Q3 2022. To determine the fastest providers for mobile networks in each country, Ookla assesses the Speed Score from all test results taken using Modern Chipsets. To be designated as a top provider, the operator's Speedtest results must account for at least 3% of the sample size in their geographic areas".
