PH efforts for a better Internet Experience - Are we there yet?
The country’s average mobile internet download speed of 12.09 Megabits per second (Mbps) is significantly far below the global mobile internet download speed of 30.89 Mbps.
Moreover, the country’s average fixed broadband internet download speed of 21.00 Mbps also falls below the global fixed broadband internet download speed of 39.62 Mbps. These results only show that the country is still far from a reliable and efficient internet connection.
Plans for improvement
The DICT (Department of Information and Communication Technology) is aiming for a policy that will significantly reduce the processing of important documents and permits into 7 days.
