Epic has received its 4th award in a row in recognition of the quality of its network. During a recent web event, umlaut, the international measurements and testing company, has once again awarded Epic as the “Best Mobile Network in Test” after a series of independent benchmarks. The new award seals the undeniable superiority and dynamic of the Epic network which is at the top of the mobile networks of Cyprus.

Epic has previously been awarded by Ookla twice in a row as the “Fastest Mobile Network in Cyprus”. The consecutive awards received by Epic from the independent international benchmarking organizations umlaut and Okla, have established Epic as the No. 1 mobile network in Cyprus while proving in practice that the company remains true to its commitment to provide a state-of-the-art network, combined with great value.

Awarding the prize to Epic, Hakan Ekmen, umlaut CEO Telecommunication, commented: “Epic presents the best user experience in Cyprus with a remarkable overall score of 911 out of 1000. Congratulations to Epic for the distinction and certification ‘ Best in Test’ in a special time, full of challenges in the middle of COVID-19.”

Receiving the award on behalf of Epic, CEO Thanos Chronopoulos, after thanking Mr. Ekmen and umlaut, stated: “It is clear that our continuous investments in our network have borne fruit. Through our dedication and hard work as well as through our continuous efforts to provide the fastest speeds and the greatest coverage, we once again receive the certification “Best Mobile Network in Test”, an unprecedented achievement in the Cypriot market.”

The award from umlaut seals the undisputed superiority and dynamic of Epic’s mobile network and demonstrates its long-standing commitment to providing subscribers with a seamless and unparalleled communication, as well as fast speeds and coverage nationwide.

As the No. 1 mobile network in Cyprus, we will continue with the same zeal, the same dedication and the same commitment to always provide an epic communication experience to everyone, every day and to lead all Cypriot citizens in the digital age.

Referring to the details of what makes the best mobile network in Cyprus, the CTIO of Epic Yiannis Michailides referred to the plan that was followed: “A good plan is simply wishful thinking, if it’s not followed by a perfect execution. Through the efforts of our team that worked in parallel with our partners we managed to successfully implement this plan. We are proud and looking forward to the next upgrades of our network.”

According to the measurements, carried out throughout Cyprus during the period 27/7/2020 to 10/1/2021, umlaut has again ranked Epic in the first place among the national mobile networks, receiving the highest overall score (911 points, on a scale 1 – 1000).
