Meanwhile, mobile speed also increased as the country yielded an average download speed of 40.37Mbps this month. In October, mobile internet speed was at 38.12Mbps.

This indicates a 5.90 percent month-to-month improvement for mobile and represents an improvement of 442.61 percent since July 2016.

“President [Rodrigo] Duterte’s announcement to streamline and speed up the issuance of LGU (local government unit) permits in July 2020 generated a significant increase in permits granted to telcos from July 2020 to October this year vis-à-vis 2019,” the NTC said in a statement.

Improvement in the country’s internet speed is largely attributed to this development as telcos are able to fast-track building infrastructures such as cell towers and fiber optic networks that are necessary for boosting services and connectivity, it added.
