The Philippines now has an average internet speed of 3.2Mbps, according to the recently-released State of the Internet Connectivity Report from global cloud Enterprise Akamai for Q4 2015.

This comes over the heels of Q3 2015’s dismal 2.8Mbps speed after surging to 3.1Mbps in Q2. This meant an 12% increase from the previous quarter, and an additional 18% from the same period last year. Peak speed also increased slightly, which is now at 27Mbps.

High-speed broadband subscription also increased, as household with over 4Mbps subscriptions recorded an additional 18%, while Filipinos with internet speeds over 10Mbps now take up a smaller 1.8% of the total count. Akamai’s report also recognizes efforts done by both Globe Telecom and PLDT as they race to install more fiber cables in areas and offer 1Gbps speeds on over 1,600 locations.

For a historical graph, look at this chart:

The bad news? Well, we’re still the second lowest among surveyed Asian Pacific nations in the report, just right above India which reportedly has a 2.8Mbps speed. Our average speed puts us at 107th ranking globally in Akamai’s Q4 2015 list.

Fellow Asian country South Korea still tops the global list at 26.7Mbps average speed, followed by Sweden and Norway with megabyte per second speeds 19.1 and 18.8, respectively.

    Matutuwa ako kung magiging 10 Mbps tayo… in a million years.

    Mararamdaman na ng mga tao yan pag 8Mbps na ang average speed sa ngayon nganga pa rin

    Mapapabilis ba ito ni du30?

    Para sa mga nagsasabing mapapabilis ba to ng kung sino man yang next president or mararamdaman ba ang pagbilis na ito, actually hinde. Parang survey lang kasi ito eh. For example may 10 tao na nag speed for this month tapos 5 sa kanila may 10 Mbps tapos yung anoth 5 may 7 Mbps, after nito kukunin yung average so ipagplus mo lahat at idivide mo sa 10 kasi yun yung dami ng respondents eh. So kung maguupgrade ang mga tao ng internet connection nila tataas din ang avg. connection. Siguro nga may epekto ang Presidente dito kung may gagawin siya sa mga sakim na telecommunications na yan.

    Kung 3mbps ako, masaya na ako. Kaso am still at 1mbps. Kung broadband naman, kapag nag-cap, down to 64kbps na lang. Di naman nagbago ang DSL speed sa mga tulad ko. Buti pa yung mga naka-2mbps, ay 3mbps na sila.

    Anyone subscribed to pldt 990, tumaas ba to 2 mbps?

    • ruelle41 says:

      Still at 1mbps :/

    • cireyaj15 says:

      Umaabot na kasi sakin ng 2mbps. sana 2mbps na.

      Very seldom that the DSL speed goes up from 1mbps to 2mpbs. When that happens, it means that PLDT had a problem and they’re fixing it, which usually last for 24 hours. We could only enjoy it while it lasts. After which the DSL speed will go back to the regular 1mbps speed.

    • cireyaj15 says:

      right. Last year umaabot ng 15 mbps. sana laging may problema at yung gain ay sa consumers.lol

    Philippines average internet speed will not easily go up if most of us will still be stuck at 1mbps speed. Still hoping for a move from 1mbps to 2mbps automatic speed upgrade.

    Typo ata sa last statement. Megabits po, di megabyte.

    sa pldt (smart, talkntext, sun cellular) at sa globe (globe, tm, abs-cbn mobile, cherry mobile), alam ng lahat na tubong lugaw na kayo sa kita sa mga telecom network nyo. maari bang mag-invest naman kayo sa pagpapaganda ng inyong mga network – coverage, signal quality at speed. maari may 4.5g (lte-a) o 5g na kau pero sa mga piling lugar lamang kung nasaan ang mga mayayaman at ubod pa ng mahal. yung kita nyo sa telecom sana duon muna sa improvement ng telecom at di muna gamitin sa pagbili ng ibang kumpanya o pag-improve ng mga kumpanya nyo na wala namang kinalaman sa telecommunications. di nakakatuwa na 3.5 mbps lang ang average speed sa pinas. maari bang paabutin nyo naman ng 5 mbps bago matapos ang taonng 2016? 10 mbps by 2017?
    sa kabilang dako, maari ba siguruhin nyo na mura naman ang rates nyo at di nakain ng load? daig nyo pa kasi ang magnanakaw sa pagbawas ng load – lalo na ang tm.
    finally, make sure malaganap ang coverage nyo – useless ang pagsabi na available na sa pinas ang 4.5g kung sa karamihan ng lugar di pa naabot sa 3g levels….
