(Inside Manila) The global leader in Internet performance testing and metrics Speedtest Global Index by Ookla reported that the Philippines’ mobile broadband speed went down 4 notches—from 90th to 94th place—in the world rankings.


Ookla releases a monthly roundup of global Internet speed rankings. The rankings are based on results found on Speedtest, Ookla's Internet speed testing service.


The social media savvy Philippines recorded 12.55 Megabits per second (Mbps) download and 5.86 Mbps upload according to the Ookla’s latest report for January.


Meanwhile, fixed broadband speeds went up one notch to 87th place with a download speed of 15.67 Mbps and an upload speed of 13.53 Mbps.


However, there’s nothing much to celebrate as the Philippines is still below the global average. Mobile broadband speeds currently have a global average of 22.23 Mbps download and 8.94 Mbps upload, while fixed broadband has a global average of 41.88 Mbps download and 20.36 Mbps upload.
