Philippines at 8.59Mbps on LTE this 2017 – OpenSignal
It’s been 6 months since OpenSignal released a State of LTE Report with the Philippines getting an average of 8.59Mbps. This is up from 7.27Mbps we reported back in November 2016.
This puts the Philippines in the 71st place (or 4th from the last) in the ranking of 75 countries for this report. Six months ago, we beat India (6.39Mbps), Saudi Arabia (5.97Mbps) and Costa Rica (5.82Mbps). This quarter, we continued to beat India (5.14Mbps), Saudi Arabia (7.84Mbps) and Costa Rica (5.14Mbps). We also surpassed Indonesia (7.71Mbps) which used to be ahead of us the last time.
The highest in the list is Singapore with 45.62Mbps and South Korea with 43.46Mbps.
In terms of 4G availability, the Philippines ranked 72nd (out of 75) with 52.77% LTE coverage ( the percentage of the time that users can connect to a 4G network). This is a little better than the 44.8% LTE availability that the Philippines got back in November 2016.
South Korea leads the pack with 96.38% LTE availability and Japan at 93.48%.
OpenSignal did not provide statistical data specific to Globe and Smart this time, unlike the one they gave back in March 2017.
For this particular report, 19,556,514,365 datapoints were collected from 558,260 users during the period: Jan 1st – Mar 31st 2017.
