Massive improvement in PH mobile internet speeds

The latest report from Ookla—a global index providing internet testing and analysis—revealed that the Philippines' ranking in terms of mobile internet speeds is up by 10 spots anew last month, even beating Russia, Malaysia, Peru, and Jordan.

Ookla's Mobile internet speed test covers 140 nations.

According to Ookla, the local telco space recorded an average download mobile internet speed reaching 25.77 megabits per second (Mbps). The average upload speed, meanwhile, was at 6.29 Mbps.

To recall, the Philippines also saw its ranking up by 14 spots in December for the same category.

For the Fixed Broadband, the country retained its 100th spot in the ranking out of 175 countries last month.

Download speed was at 32.73 Mbps in January, while upload speed reached 31.64 Mbps.

Up by 10 spots versus December 2020

The government has been assisting existing telcos in their network buildup through the strict implementation of the Ease of Doing Business Act or the Republic Act 11032.

The government has cut the processing of securing permits for the deployment of towers. It also opened the sector to common tower builders.

Both Globe Telecom and PLDT are targeting to deploy 4,000 cell sites this 2021. Third player Dito Telecommunity, meanwhile, is slated to commercially launch its services next month.
