Leading digital solutions platform Globe once more emerged in the driver’s seat after scoring the fastest internet speeds through its Globe at Home Broadband Business in October. This cements its dominance in the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) performance rating of subscription-based streaming service Netflix in the Philippines.
Globe at Home topped the October 2022 Netflix ISP Speed Index with a score of 3.6 Mbps, a boost of 0.2 Mbps from its 3.4 Mbps result in September.
“Topping Netflix ISP Speed Index anew is proof of our commitment to providing the best internet services to our customers. Faster Netflix performance generally means better picture quality, quicker start times and fewer interruptions,” said Janis Legaspi-Racpan, Head of Globe At Home Brand Management.
Globe at Home has been taking the Netflix ISP top spot for the past 10 months or since January, as the company continues to enrich the experience of customers by providing a #1stWorldNetwork.
As of the third quarter of the year, Globe has spent P74.4 billion in capital expenditure (CAPEX) to build new cell sites, upgrade existing sites to 4G/LTE, accelerate rollout of 5G connectivity and fast-track the fiberization of Filipino homes nationwide.
Globe at Home’s score was at par with that of 31 countries, namely Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Ireland, Israel, Japan, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, United Kingdom, and the United States.
Its performance was also better than the 3.4 Mbps average speed in the Philippines, Argentina, Austria, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, France, Greece, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Peru, Poland, Taiwan, Trinidad & Tobago, Uruguay, and Vietnam.
Last year, Globe at Home dominated the Netflix ISP Speed Index for 10 out of the 12 months, taking the top spot from February to November.
Netflix is one of the world’s leading streaming entertainment services with 223 million paid memberships in over 190 countries enjoying TV series, documentaries, feature films and mobile games across a wide variety of genres and languages.
The Netflix ISP Speed Index measures the performance of a particular ISP. Speed is vital for Netflix streaming since its videos load quickly on networks with faster data transmission and minimal delays. Otherwise, viewers may encounter issues such as buffering and pixelation while streaming content.
