Globe At Home Leads Netflix ISP Speed Index for 5th Straight Month This Year
Globe At Home topped the Philippine Internet Service Providers (ISPs) performance rating of subscription-based streaming service Netflix for the fifth straight month this year.
The broadband arm of leading digital solutions platform Globe scored 3.4 Mbps in the index for May, higher than its 3.2 Mbps result in April.
Netflix's ISP Speed Index determines which ISPs offer the best viewing experience during peak hours. Data is gathered from subscribers using the online video streaming platform.
The speed index 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.
Globe’s score in the May 2022 Netflix ISP Index is also at par with the country’s overall rating.
In terms of performance, the Philippines is in the same speed category as Australia, Japan, South Korea, United Kingdom, and the United States.
In 2021, Globe dominated the Netflix ISP Speed Index for 10 months, taking the top spot from February to November.
“We want to enrich the experience of our subscribers by providing them with the best connectivity wherever they may be. The Netflix Speed Index proves that we are on the right track,” said Janis Racpan, Head of Globe At Home Product Marketing.
Globe continues to ramp up its capital-intensive modernization program to provide customers with consistent, high-quality video streaming speed.
Globe is committed to innovation in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which highlights the roles of infrastructure and innovation as economic growth and development drivers under SDG No. 9.
To attain this, Globe has been pursuing aggressive network expansion, earmarking P89 billion this year to build new cell sites, upgrade existing sites to 4G/LTE, accelerate the rollout of 5G connectivity, and fast-track the fiberization of Filipino homes nationwide.
