Philippines INTERNET Speed 2015

Despite being regarded as the social media capital of the world, the Philippines has the slowest internet speed in the entire Southeast Asian region and is ranked 158th out of 190 countries worldwide.

According to the Net Index (www.netindex.com) rankings by internet broadband testing company Ookla, Philippines has an average speed of 3.54 Megabits per second (Mbps).

In comparison, Hong Kong has 77 Mbps putting it first in the world, while the Philippines’ Southeast Asian neighbor Singapore is second with 65 Mbps as of the April 2014 rankings.

Thailand has an average speed of 17.92 Mbps (48th worldwide), Vietnam has 13 Mbps (61st), Cambodia has 5.74 Mbps (116th), Malaysia has 5.4 Mbps (122nd), Brunei has 5.3 Mbps (125th), Myanmar has 5.22 Mbps (127th), Laos has 4.33 Mbps (143rd), and Indonesia has 4.19 mbps (148th).

The Philippines fared worst with a measured average speed of just 3.6 Mbps. But the nation’s telcos do have faster internet packages available. Philippine telco PLDT is offering three to 10 Mbps internet speeds, including its new LTE for the household option. Rival ISP Globe provides one to 15 Mbps internet plans, also including a home LTE package.

Despite the options available, issues of affordability, remoteness, and patchy speeds still blight most web users in Southeast Asia.
