Globe is still leading in terms of 4G availability but Smart showed a significant improvement, closing the gap to less than 4 points.

Download speeds for both telco companies has seen a considerable improvement in the last 6 months as well. Globe's average download speed has grown 14 percent to 5Mbps in their tests while Smart's average has grown 29 percent to 7.5Mbps. Smart's increased speeds is directly related to the rapid rise of their 4G availability.

In terms of 4G latency, the results are more varied. Latency is the network's response time or most popularly known as ping.

The lower the number is the more stable the network is. Smart's 4G latency numbers suffered the last 6 months with an increase of more than 5ms. Globe, on the other hand, showed an improvement of around 5ms as well. This category is basically a tie.
