In particular, the Philippines' Mobile data download speed average is up to 29.12 Mbps with an upload speed of 7.65 Mbps and a latency of 33ms. The country's download speeds up to 49.31 Mbps with an upload speed of 47.83 Mbps and 22ms latency for Fixed Broadband.

To recap, in December 2020, PH rank for Mobile is 96 and 100 for Fixed Broadband.

Globe Telecom, one of the country's major telco players shared that it had the most consistent network in the country for Q1 2021 with a score of 70.43.

Globe noted that these upgrades are evidence of the telco's consistent network upgrades. One example is the in Manila and Quezon City alone, a total of 363 site builds and upgrades were completed under the One Globe Education program. This move resulted in a 19 percent increase in "good experience" among educators and students in Manila and a 10 percent increase in Quezon City based on the telco’s latest customer experience metrics data between October 2020 and April 2021.

Ookla hasn't shared the other factors of the country's increase in rank, but likely, these are parallel with the ongoing network upgrades of both Globe and Smart and the recent entry of DITO as the 3rd major telco in the Philippines.

This 2021, PLDT said that it will invest up to PHP 92 billion for network expansion this year. Globe, on the other hand, has PHP 70 billion. Most of that fund will be used for network upgrades.
