Globe Telecom Inc. said it remains the undisputed leader in mobile network consistency in the Philippines, according to first quarter 2021 Speedtest results from Ookladata.
Global analytics firm Ookla confirmed Globe as the Philippines’ most consistent network for Q1 2021, with a nationwide consistency score of 70.43, ahead of competition.
“We are happy that our relentless efforts to improve our network are now being experienced by our customers. We expect our site builds and upgrades to continue despite the pandemic to provide more access and higher data capacity for our customers,” shared Ernest Cu, Globe President and Chief Executive Officer.
On a regional perspective, Ookla data also showed highest mobile consistency scores in the following regions: Calabarzon, Central Luzon, Northern Mindanao, Ilocos Region, Eastern Visayas, Bicol, MIMAROPA, Cagayan Valley, Zamboanga Peninsula, and Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR).
Mobile consistency score is determined by the number of tests taken that are above a certain speed threshold.
In the same quarter, Ookla, confirmed Globe as the leader in 10 out of 17 regions in terms of mobile median download speed – solidifying the Ayala-led telco’s lead over competition by a significant distance. These regions are: Bicol, Cagayan Valley, Caraga, CAR, Eastern Visayas, Ilocos Region, Northern Mindanao, Region XII, and Zamboanga Peninsula.
Globe being able to top 10 regions is a clear indication that the telco giant’s incessant efforts on network site improvements and service upgrades are already being felt by its customers.
