The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) has started testing the internet speeds of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) since September last year.

However, after 3 months of collecting speed results of subscribers across Metro Manila, the NTC still got unreliable results because data were sorely lacking. Apparently, not a lot of subscribers are willing to let the NTC visit their houses and do the random tests. As such, they could not publish any results.

Wala naman ata nagbabasa ng email or nag-monitor ng inbox ng NTC. Nagsend ako ng email to volunteer pero until now wala pa din sa akin nagreply from NTC.

Dapat maki-partner ang NTC sa ganitong organisasyon: https://www.samknows.com

Ganyan dito sa SG, mga volunteers binibigyan ng modified router device na ipu-plugin lang sa network. No need to run tests. Automatic na yan magtetest at magrereport. Purely volunteer effort pero non-intrusive, di na kailangan ng tao na papasok sa premises mo para mag-install ng kung anu-ano.

Fake naman ang speedtest result, lalo na pag sa globe… Normal browsing, mabagal. Pero pag tawag ka hotline, pinapa speedtest ka, sobrang bilis ng result… Nka white list yata ang speedtest.net sa globe…

Pag mag speedtest sa globe connection, with globe server, grabe super bilis ng result.. Pero kung ibang server, maliban sa globe, lalabas ang tunay na result, which is, mabagal…

Why not coordinate with Speedtest.net to gather all the speedtest data in the Philippines.

Madalas kasi ng nagte-test sa Speedtest.net ay di kino-complete yung ISP info survey after the test. Another concern din is sa speed test server since di maganda peering ng telco sa Pinas (Try using a PLDT server when using Globe and vice versa). Minsan kasi malabo pumili ng speed test server ang Speedtest.net

Isa pang concern ay paano yung intermittent yung internet connections. May mga instances na di natatapos yung test midway kasi nag-eerror. So yung ganung instances ay di nire-record ng Speedtest.net but will shed light sa state ng internet connectivity sa bansa.

Speedtest.net results are, if not always, unreliable. I used Smart SIM when I was in the PH and it always gave me 20Mbps + download speed while using their LTE service. What made it bogus was I couldn’t even load a webpage. Tried it, too, with another phone with the same results.

Ano to. Wireless or wired? Kasi kung wired. Magbebase padin sa binabayaran na plan Ang speed. Kung wireless. Don talo tayo. Dito sa Sta. Lucia pasig. Mahina Ang globe 3g. Madaming dead spot. Sa smart ganon din. Parehas nasubukan ko. Kaya no choice kung di wired.
