The Globe at Home has surpassed the Internet Service Provider (ISP) performance rating of subscription streaming service Netflix in the Philippines for the fourth month in a row this year.
The Globe achieved the fastest speeds through its Globe At Home broadband business, according to Netflix’s April 2022 ISP Speed Index. In 2021, Globe at Home also topped the list for 10 out of 12 months.
Globe’s score is equal to the country’s total score. Others in the same category are Argentina, Austria, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, France, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Paraguay, Poland, Taiwan, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Uruguay and Vietnam.
The Netflix ISP Speed Index determines which ISPs provide the best viewing experience during peak hours. Data is collected from customers using online video streaming platforms.
Speed ratings are important for Netflix streaming because its videos load quickly on networks with low latency, packet loss, and jitteriness. Otherwise, users may experience issues like buffering and pixelation while watching videos.
“We are thrilled to be able to deliver consistent, high-quality video streaming speeds. This is a testament to our tireless efforts to provide affordable, world-class connectivity to Filipinos in the Philippines,” said Barbie Dapul, Vice President of Marketing, Globe at Home he said.
Globe is spending 89 billion pesos this year on its aggressive network expansion to improve Internet quality and coverage. It is part of its commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly SDG 9, which highlights the critical role of infrastructure and innovation in development.
This year’s investment allocation will be used to build new cell sites, upgrade existing sites to 4G/LTE, accelerate the rollout of 5G connectivity and accelerate fiber to Filipino homes across the country.
Last year, Globe spent a record 92.8 billion pesos to build 1,407 new cell sites, upgrade more than 22,300 mobile sites, install more than 2,000 outdoor 5G sites and building solutions, and install fiber to 1.4 million homes.
