Philippine average internet speed for Q3 2016 at 4.2Mbps — report

The latest Akamai report for the state of internet connectivity for Q3 2016 shows the stagnant state of the Philippine internet speed.


According to the report, the Philippines has an average Internet connection speed of 4.2Mbps for Q3 2016 which is a slight decrease from the 4.3Mbps average of the previous quarter. This puts the country at 14th place among APAC countries just above India, with a global rank of 103.



While the average peak connection speed is at 32.8Mbps. Last quarter, it’s a very close 32.9Mbps.


These dormant numbers of average speeds in the country could mean that most of the fixed broadband subscription in the country are still yet to be upgraded. The coverage of fiber optic cables in the country, even in key cities, is still limited.
