In the Philippines, Globe Telecom has made the most improvement in 5G Games Experience among Group I operators (those from markets with a land area of more than 200,000 square kilometers), Opensignal reported.
Despite Filipino users observing an increase of 5.9Mbps (37.7%) in their average overall download speeds, the Philippines has gone from third place to fourth, as it has been overtaken by Malaysia — which has achieved an impressive burst of speed.
The arrival of new entrant Dito, the introduction of 5G, pressure from the government to improve connectivity, and the Covid-19 pandemic have caused operators to redouble their efforts and up their investment in their networks, Opensignal said.
Opensignal’s latest analysis demonstrates that when there is poor connectivity users spend much less time in apps as they become dissatisfied with the experience and are less likely to retain apps on their device.
The latest report from mobile metrics firm Opensignal has revealed that the Philippines ranked first worldwide for “video experience” uplift, thanks to a 79% increase in mobile video streaming experience with 5G compared with 4G.
