George Town, Grand Cayman (25 October 2016) – The world leader in broadband testing and web-based network diagnostic applications has given Caymans’ leading telecommunications provider its stamp of approval.

According to independent analysts Ookla, owners and operators of the globally used speedtest.net online portal, Flow has both the fastest broadband and mobile services in the country based on raw data records for the past six months.

“We are delighted that Flow has come out on top in independent testing” said Daniel Tathum, Director of Customer Experience, . “It’s great not only for the company but for our customers and partners who put faith in us each day to keep them connected whether at home, work or on the go.”

“We’ve worked hard to bring world class services to our customers by offering the fastest and most reliable network on an enhanced mobile-broadband experience. Ookla’s findings are further confirmation that our continued investment in these islands with Superfast Broadband and our 4G LTE network is resulting in a better overall experience for our customers. We will continue our commitment and focus on innovation and customer experience with renewed vigour. Congratulations go to the entire Flow family,” added Tathum.

Ookla’s software and methodologies are widely viewed as the industry standard for accuracy, popularity, ease of use and the subsequent development of statistical data.

The company’s solutions have also been adopted by nearly every Internet Service Provider (ISP) in the world and have been translated into over thirty languages for use by thousands of small businesses, governments, universities and major media organisations such as AT&T, BBC, Cisco, Comcast, , Reuters, Time Warner, Verizon, Vodafone and Vonage.

Victor Salgado, SVP Technology, Cable & Wireless Communications, offered his congratulations to the Cayman team.

“Over three million people a day use Ookla software, making the company the dominant leader in broadband connection testing. Its speed test intelligence is also the most comprehensive database of crowdsourced connection test results that offers an unparalleled resource to understand real-time global network performance. To receive an endorsement from them is clear proof that Flow is ahead of the pack in the Cayman Islands,” he said.
