NTC Tests Reveal No ISP Hit 100% Promised Speeds

Check out the random speed tests conducted by NTC

Remember the random speed tests that the National Telecommunications Commission is conducting to test the speeds of internet providers all over the PH? They just did another big one recently and guess what – their tests reveal that not a single ISP hit the 100% of the speeds that they’ve advertised. Take a look:

The tests were conducted from February 15 to March 10 and revealed that Bayan Tel was the worst offender, only delivering on average 59.17% percent of the speeds that they advertised. On the opposite side of the spectrum Globe delivered 82.44 percent of their advertised speeds. PLDT delivered 74.73%, while Sky Broadband delivered 63.60%. The tests were conducted on a variety of internet plans offered by the telcos, from regular DSL to Fiber.

As far as sanctions are concerned, the NTC isn’t leveling any penalties on the ISPs as of yet, saying that the tests are not conclusive. The ISPs still have a chance to redeem themselves, as the NTC says that there will be more tests to follow on April.

  1. OMG !!!

    FOR THE LONGEST TIME
    NOTHING WITH WHAT NTC
    IS DOING IS EVER CONCLUSIVE !!!

    UP TO THIS VERY TIME
    STILL NO ACTION AGAINST
    THE ERRING TELCOS
    CAN BE DONE BY NTC ???

    PUTANG INA… !!!
    KAILAN PA… ???

  2. The speed is up to the problem is plot doesn’t want to join a neutral IXP to make the local bandwidth faster and lesser latency. Pldt controls majority of the Internet in the Phillipines. In other countries/continent(Europe) they have a neutral IXP which has no payments to interconnect between isps and cdn. That’s why big companies doesn’t want to host servers in Philippines our network infrastructure iso bad.

  3. There should be a fine to all the ISP’s for not delivering their promised speeds without this they will never do anything about it

  4. NTC knows these facts! That’s a guarantee. Will they take action or even do something about it? Never! Let’s face it, NTC is a gov’t institution run by PLDT oligarchs, this is how they continue their strong hold in monopoly which continuously pour in tons of money in thier pocket while consumers endure the worst service. All these are merely publicity stunt to trick the public that they are a functioning independent gov’t agency. I know so because I work for an Australian Telecom company. For NTC.. fuck u!

  5. wala kasing batas na napapasa tungkol sa standards ng internet kaya wala magawa ang NTC dahil di nman nila pwede paruhsan at wala din naman parusang mabigat para sa mga ito, dahil wala naman standard na pwedeng pag basihan..

    kaya dapat bumoto tayo ng senador or kalampagin ang senado tungkol sa pag pasa ng batas para sa internet standards, hindi yung free wifi sa buong pilipinas, or pag papalit ng pangalan ng mga kalsada at buildings..

    dito mapapansin na may promoprotekta talaga sa mga higante na to kasi sila din ang nangunguna sa pag bigay ng campaign funds sa mga tumatakbo, kaya walang nag lalakas ng loob gumawa ng batas dito

    1. Kahit walang batas sa standards ng internet pwd nmang parusahan sla sa panlilinlang ng promised speeds nila na di tinutupad ei… Napakamandurugas lng talaga ng mga telcos. At syempre… May mga protektor yan sa Ntc kaya wala pa rin aksyon kahit may ebidnsya na. Tsk3x!!!
