Philippines at the bottom in Speed & Availability of 3G, 4G — OpenSignal
In the latest Global State of Networks report by OpenSignal, the Philippines continues to lag behind in terms of mobile internet speed and availability. The survey was conducted across 95 countries with South Korea having the fastest overall speed of 41.3 Mbps, while the slowest average we measured was 2.2 Mbps in Afghanistan. The Philippines ranked at #89 (of the 95 countries) at 3.13Mbps.
LTE may be the technology du jour, but 4G can only tell us so much about a country’s overall mobile networking progress. In our first Global State of Networks report, OpenSignal has examined the overall mobile data performance of the 95 different countries to see how they stack up. While 4G is a big factor especially in the most developed nations, 3G is still an important component of most countries’ mobile data infrastructure and Wifi has a major influence on the way the majority of the world uses smartphones.
OpenSignal also surveyed the availability of 3G and higher connections (3G, HSPA+, LTE) while users are online and found out that Filipino mobile internet users only get 3G or better connections only 68.63% of the time. Singapore has 94% and Korea, which topped the list, is at 98.5%.
Countries in the top right corner of the chart has the best performance in terms of speed and availability. The ones on the bottom left are the worst.
The survey was conducted from May 1 to July 23, 2016 with a user sample size of 822,556 and 12,356,994,498 data sample size.
Last February 2016, we also reported that Smart averages 7Mbps on LTE while Globe gets an average of 4Mbps as measured by OpenSignal.
