Smart broke away from Globe in the six months since our last report to take the 4G Availability award.
We found a strong correlation between mobile Download Speed Experience and the GDP per capita of countries across southeast and south Asia. Our approach revealed a completely different landscape compared with looking at Download Speed Experience, Games Experience or other measures of mobile network experience in isolation.
While users on Smart scored just slightly higher than Globe for 4G Availability across rural and urban areas, the Download Speed Experience of our Filipino users is very polarized. Our rural users on Smart enjoyed a faster speed than Globe in all but three regions — Central Luzon, Central Visayas, and BARMM — where they tied.
In one year mobile Video Experience has significantly improved in 59% of 100 countries analyzed. But the U.S. is lagging behind on mobile video as carriers face a spectrum crunch. Uniquely, Opensignal tests mobile video streaming at scale and does not estimate video experience based on speed tests or other indirect measurements.
Opensignal has analyzed the experience of our users across Singtel group’s mobile operator subsidiaries and regional associates. We found that while there is a big gap between Singtel's wholly-owned entities in Singapore and Australia (Optus) and the rest in Download Speed Experience, the gap was narrower for both Voice App Experience and Video Experience.
