Average LTE in PH is 8Mbps, one of the slowest in the world
As part of OpenSignal’s report and in addition to our previous article showing the average speed of both Smart and Globe, the data shows that Philippines has an average LTE speed of 8Mbps — one of the slowest in the world.
With Globe and Smart averaging 11Mbps and 5Mbps respectively, it results to 8Mbps average which puts us in the same ranking as South Africa, Ecuador, and Thailand. Sad to say, it’s pretty clear that we’re the bunch that are on the bottom part of the list as ranked by speed.
The company drew data from the hundreds of thousands of OpenSignal users that have LTE-capable phones and connect to operators with live 4G networks. That data was collected in three months between June and August.
