Orange Armenia has been recognized as the leading 3G+ mobile
internet network in Armenia, according to the study conducted by the
independent and internationally recognized “P3 Communications” German
consulting firm, by the request of Orange France Telecom Group. The
study, based on the use of international standards, has evaluated
several parameters, such as access to static websites, including
the YouTube homepage, video streaming, sending and receiving emails,
file upload and download and website access time of 26 mobile networks
in 8 European countries. All tests were conducted with commercially
available USB modems, smartphones and specific software.

As a result of the study, performed in Armenia twice last year, it has
been concluded that Orange Armenia provides the best speed and quality
for internet services in Armenia, for all above-mentioned services.

“In the last years, we have worked to build in Armenia one of the best
European networks. In 2012 we have increased the network capability
with a speed of up to 42Mbps in Yerevan, Gumri and Vanadzor and
21Mbps in the countryside. We are pleased that our strategic focus
on network quality is bearing its fruits. We will continue to focus
on improving the speed and the network performance so that we can
offer customers of our mobile voice and data services the best user
comfort,” said Francis Gelibter, CEO of Orange Armenia. In Armenia,
measurements took place from June 13 to July 5 and from November 19 to
30, 2012 in Yerevan, Gyumri, Vanadzor, and Etchmiadzin considering
that almost 80% of the data traffic is generated in these areas
due to concentration of population. Measurements were made in city
centres, business, commercial and suburban areas, with around 20%
of measurements performed in motion, travelling within cities. The
overall study was carried out in Armenia, Belgium, Luxemburg, Moldova,
Poland, Romania, Spain and Slovakia from May to August 2012 and from
October 17, 2012 to January 15, 2013. The study has been conducted on
behalf of Orange Group by “P3 Communications”, a leading international
independent consulting firm. It is part of continuing measurement
campaigns focusing on the quality of selected 3G mobile data service
operators in Europe, comparing measurement results from 26 mobile
networks compared in Orange markets across Europe.
