Mobile metrics firm Opensignal has reported that its users have seen significant improvements in all five Philippine regions between Q4 2018 and Q3 2020 for Mobile Video Experience, Download Speed Experience, Latency Experience and 4G Availability.
“Video Experience” in the Philippines has improved along with the increasing popularity of video streaming among Filipinos, according to the latest analysis by telecom analytics firms OpenSignal.
Due to the lockdown, Filipino mobile users are spending more time in locations where the network infrastructure does not normally support such large numbers of users.
Mobile users in the Philippines saw their video experience improve by an impressive 32% — the fourth largest increase in percentage terms for this metric covered in the survey and the third largest improvement in the Asia Pacific.
In terms of download speed, Smart had an overall download speed of 10.6 Mbps, which is 3-Mbps faster than Globe.
A new report from telecom metrics firm Opensignal showed that Filipino mobile users spent the highest average time on WiFi in Asia during a period when most countries in the region went on a lockdown to contain the Covid-19 pandemic.
But Opensignal said it’s possible to buck the GDP and population density trend, indicating that countries that implement their mobile networks shrewdly can rise up the international rankings.
A new study on “voice app experience” carried out by mobile metrics firm Opensignal has ranked the Philippines near the bottom of the standings with a “Very Poor” rating.
