The UAE's telecoms regulator says that it has completed its benchmarking tests of the country's two mobile networks to ensure they are compliant with their regulatory obligations.
The annual survey measures the level of services offered by mobile networks as a means to ensure that each operator meets performance requirements. The benchmarking programme was carried out through driving tests for more than 13,000 kilometres across the UAE. The programme also included voice and data testing as well as indoor venue testing.
Commenting on the completion of the survey, H.E. Mohamed Nasser Al Ghanim said: "We take these surveys seriously because they are the main elements that guarantee improving the quality of services in the UAE, helping us to achieve one of our strategic goals reflected in reaching a leading status in this sector regionally and globally."
The results were recorded and the process of discussing the results with operators in the UAE telecommunications sector is underway.
The TRA said that it will publish the results later, but did not say when..
