With a global ranking of 176, the Philippines has an average internet connection speed of 3.66 Mbps last 2015. Pressured by the results, local telcos (Smart and Globe) boosted internet connection speeds around the country. And now with the recent test conducted by Akamai, results shows that the Philippines is now ranked #94 globally having an average of 4.3 Mbps in broadband and 8.5 Mbps in mobile.
It seems that mobile 4G connection is the top priority of local telcos as more customers are hooked into their mobile. Looking at the results, our mobile connection speed is at par with Australia.
