    This is a joke. A tool that’s only designed to make it look like you have the fastest connection available and doesn’t reflect real-world use. Despite getting more than 100Mbps speed on tests, only select sites like FB or Netflix work well.

    PLDT is the fastest, but only by what amount? 1kbps? 2kbps? It doesn’t matter that they are the fastest if their average internet speed is one of the slowest in Asia.

    Fastest? Yes
    Overpriced? Hell fucking yes
