CEO update: Global telecoms infrastructure

At Spearline, we continue to monitor the ongoing COVID-19 situation and its impact on global telecommunications.
On Friday 29 May 2020 by Kevin Buckley

With many countries beginning to cautiously reopen their economies, Spearline is hopeful that the peak of the pandemic has now passed. However, we will continue to carefully monitor the situation as it unfolds.

Connection rates in Ecuador and Croatia continue to be badly affected. Connection failures have also been experienced in Israel and the Philippines; however, their audio quality continues to perform well.

Connection rates in ISRAEL remain volatile, although some improvements have been observed in the last two weeks. Audio quality performance is relatively good.



In the PHILIPPINES, an average failure rate of 2.37% was observed on the 18th May. Audio quality scores have performed strongly, but with some variability on both May 18th and May 19th.



In ECUADOR, connection rates continue to be unstable, with a 23% failure rate recorded on May 13th. Audio quality issues have occurred intermittently, with low scores recorded on May 16th, 23rd and 24th.



CROATIA has witnessed a drastic decrease in connection rates. 80% and 78.86% were observed on May 24th and May 25th respectively.



Countries showing signs of connection failures and audio quality degradation are included in the table below.
