Ookla Slowest 5G Q2 • Ookla: Manila Among 10 World Capitals With Slowest 5G Download Speeds

Ookla mentioned that capitals not mentioned on either of the lists did not have sufficient 5G samples during Q1-Q2 2021 to be included in the report.

In a separate white paper, Ookla reported that Manila has a 5G availability of 24.3%. A 5G Availability of less than 48% indicates that most 5G users spent the majority of their time on older network technology. In Johannesburg, 5G users were only on 5G networks 1.4% of the time. 5G Availability was also relatively low in Singapore (6.8%), Rome (6.9%), Paris (7.2%), and Berlin (7.8%).

Is 112 mbps considered slow? In relative comparison yes but in practical use, absolutely not!
