TORONTO, Aug. 15, 2023 – A new study released by the independent benchmarking company umlaut ranks Rogers as the number one Canadian wireless carrier in voice, data and reliability for its wireless network. This marks the fifth consecutive year Rogers has won umlaut’s “Best in Test” award.

The study shows Rogers wireless customers enjoy the best network performance in the country, winning umlaut’s “Best in Test” mobile benchmark award. umlaut measured the performance of voice and data services on smartphones based on extensive drive tests throughout Canada and crowdsourced data. The drive tests were completed across 30,000 km over 47 days, covering major metropolitan areas, smaller cities and connection roads. Testing measured reliability, responsiveness, download/upload speed, voice quality, call setup time, and video streaming stability and quality.
