Smartfren on the other hand, for its network, is only for 4G and no longer accommodated 3G, has won two categories. Nevertheless, Smartfren's Download Speed that reaches 9.83 Mbps should be appreciated, superior to XL Axiata which previously tailing Telkomsel.

The report shows that Indosat Ooredoo is the operator with the "worst" network quality. Indosat is in the bottom position for almost all categories.

Smartfren as the winner in this category has recorded 92%, while Telkomsel is stagnant in the bottom of 69%.

In regional, OpenSignal tries to map the network quality and quantity in several cities with slightly different results. Although Telkomsel continues to dominate, Smarfren keeps making surprises, especially in Makassar and Surabaya.
