Globe drives home broadband improvement in PH

Globe Telecom is on the right track with the steady improvement of the state of the Philippine internet, as the latest Ookla Speedtest Global Index report showed 12.43 Mbps average download speeds for fixed internet, as a result of increased investment and the change in the way consumers enjoy video content.

Ookla revealed in its Speedtest Global Index that the Philippines is showing significant improvement in broadband speed. For fixed broadband, the Philippines average download speed is up 57% YoY at 12.43 Mbps, while the average upload speed doubled from last year, posting 111% growth which now stands at 10.37 Mbps.

The Speedtest Global Index is based on hundreds of millions of user-initiated tests conducted through the Speedtest website and app by Ookla, a leading global company that specializes in internet testing and analysis.

Senior Vice President of Globe At Home Martha Sazon said the report confirms the company’s endeavor to continue improving the state of internet in the Philippines.

“We will continue to change home broadband with better offers, more data allocation and overall superior experience. We expect Philippine internet to improve further by aggressively deploying leading edge network technology, to serve two million homes by 2020 with high-speed internet” said Sazon.

Another independent report confirms the country’s steadily improving internet state. In the Q1 2017 State of the Internet report from Akamai, the country registered the strongest growth in Asia Pacific region in terms of “above 4 Mbps connectivity adoption” at 39% adoption rate, growing 26% QoQ and a robust 111% YoY.

Based on the same Akamai report, higher bandwidth adoption rates more than tripled from 2016.

Above 10 Mbps connectivity adoption, the country showed an 11% adoption, growing by 53% QoQ and a remarkable 330% YoY, while having a 6.2% adoption for 15 Mbps.
