Certification

Certified as Malta’s Best Mobile Network

The independent German firm Umlaut AG (formerly P3) once again confirmed Vodafone SuperNet as the 'Best Network in Test'. Umlaut has measured, tested and analysed the performance of Vodafone's voice and data services on smartphones in comparison to other local mobile networks through extensive drive tests.

The testing was carried out in January 2020 in major urban areas as well as smaller villages and connection roads across Malta and Gozo.
