Fast Internet in PH?  Where can you find it?

Type of service

Another consideration is that the type of service available in your area will dictate your internet speed. There are four basic types of internet service and the technology each utilizes can limit the amount of speed you can receive in your home.

Satellite and DSL internet connections tend to be much slower than cable and fiber connections. Satellite internet bounces signal from a satellite to your home and the transmission of data can be slowed by weather and other users. DSL connections, widely available in rural areas, utilize phone lines but the technology limits how much data can be transmitted at once.

Cable is one of the fastest high-speed internet connections, but it too can slow depending on the amount of use occurring as it routes data through your neighborhood hub. Some metro areas of the United States offer fiber and this type of internet delivers high-speeds efficiently. Some fiber networks offer speeds of 1 Gigabyte or more (1,000 Mbps).

ed-uy.jpgOf all the memorable quotes and insights Jack Ma shared during his recent trip to the country, almost all the publications shared a favorite line: “Philippine Internet… it’s no good.”

The founder of the Alibaba Group made his first business venture in the Philippines with a deal with Globe Telecom Inc., noting the need for improved Internet services in the country as he expressed disappointment over the country’s Internet services. “I arrived late last night and I tried to test the speed of Philippine Internet. It’s no good.”

While the spokesmen of both telcos acknowledged there’s still much to be done to improve Internet services in the Philippines, they also emphasized the need for the government’s involvement to help turn slow, costly Internet around.

“We know there’s still a lot of room for improvement insofar as Internet services are concerned. However, even a man of stature like Jack Ma understands that government and private sector need to work together to improve services,” Globe Senior Vice President for corporate communications Yolanda Crisanto was quoted in a news article.

Ramon Isberto, PLDT spokesman then said, “We have been working very hard and investing heavily to improve the quality of our Internet services. Although we still have much to do, these efforts have started to pay off.”

In a report done by Akamai Technologies about the  Global State of the Internet Report, the Philippines was found to have slowest average Internet speed in Asia Pacific.

Although there was an improvement, the average connection speed is just 5.5 Mbps, falling short of the global average Internet connection speed of 7.2 Mbps.

Globe’s Crisanto then urged the government to cut red tape so the telcos could speed up the implementation of its network rollout plan. “We have been calling for government support to ease permitting issues in order to build more infrastructure like cellsites, which we need.”

FAST Internet NOW

But it’s not just the two telcos that are working hard to improve the Internet in the country.

NOW Corp., known for its Fiber Air service, recently entered the residential market to provide fast and reliable broadband services.
