PLDT out-speeds all other PH internet providers for the fourth year in a row

With a four-peat record at the Ookla®Speedtest AwardsTM, PLDT is the uncontested fastest fixed network in the Philippines. According to the current Speedtest AwardsTM for Q1-Q2 2021, PLDT had the fastest download and upload speeds in Makati, Cebu, and Davao, with an overall speed score of 46.25 for the quarter, outperforming all other major internet providers in the Philippines.

According to Ookla, the highest download and upload speeds for the telecom giant were 113.2 Mbps and 136.61 Mbps, respectively. This information was derived from a study of millions of consumer-initiated tests conducted on Speedtest® platforms. Speed tests using computer devices connected to a fixed network as well as through a Wi-Fi connection are included. 

“PLDT’s digital services have greatly contributed to the lives of many Filipinos as we navigate the new normal of working, studying and doing things at home. The Ookla Speedtest Award™ is a recognition of our unwavering initiatives to provide the best broadband connectivity through our robust expansion and migration of our fixed network to serve more Filipino homes nationwide,” says Butch G. Jimenez, Jr., Senior Vice President and Head of PLDT Home Business.

PH’s Undisputed Speed Leader

This is the fourth consecutive year since 2018 that PLDT gained the top spot awarded by Ookla®, the global leader in broadband network intelligence.

Speedtest Awards, presented by Ookla, are reserved for an elite delegation of network operators that have delivered exceptional internet performance and coverage within a market. It is our pleasure to present PLDT with the award for Fastest Fixed Network in the Philippines. This recognition is testament to their exceptional performance in Q1-Q2 2021 based on Ookla’s rigorous analysis of consumer-initiated tests taken with Speedtest,” said Doug Suttles, Ookla CEO.

Analyzing internet speed data per city, Ookla® places the biggest emphasis on a network’s download speeds and median speeds as those represent what most customers experience on a day-to-day basis. Ookla® assessed the best network speeds attained across a given network, accounting for tests that are taken on various Speedtest® platforms.
