PLDT achieved a 5 year peat win at Ookla Speedtest Awards

PLDT Inc. (PLDT) achieved a five-peat win at the Ookla® Speedtest Awards™ 2022, a first for PLDT, and for the Philippines. 

Global benchmarking company Ookla® announced that PLDT achieved a top speed score of 86.52 in 2022, affirming the telco’s dominance and consistent performance in delivering the country’s fastest Internet speeds for the fifth consecutive year.


As a result of its aggressive network expansion and drive to lift quality customer experience, PLDT consistently dominated the Ookla® Speedtest Awards™ for five consecutive years.


The PLDT Group has been supporting the country’s digitalization by bringing the benefits of connectivity and other digital services to more areas in the Philippines. PLDT recorded a total of 6.08 million fiber-powered ports, covering around 17,700 barangays across the country in 2022.


“PLDT’s commitment is to help build and empower the nation by setting the bar high in providing world-class digital services for Filipinos,” said PLDT President and CEO Alfredo S. Panlilio. “For the past five years, PLDT has made big strides to elevate our customers’ experience by delivering the best-fixed network services. We intend to keep this momentum and to go above and beyond in ensuring that our customers get the best digital experience wherever they need it – at home, school, or the office.”


2021 until today, PLDT remains the only telco in the Philippines that can deliver the fastest fiber-optic speeds of up to 10 Gbps.This groundbreaking move has placed the Philippines alongside first-world nations in terms of ultra-fast internet speeds including other countries like South Korea, Japan, Norway, Italy, New Zealand, and USA.


Before 2022 ended, PLDT achieved an all-time high number of home broadband customers by adding 1.1 million new fiber subscribers, capturing 59% of fiber customer industry growth for 2022. This brought PLDT Home’s total fiber subscribers to 2.9 million.

PLDT Home continues to be the trusted telco provider for Filipinos that delivers the fastest internet and future-ready innovations in their homes. Leading innovations for the home broadband segment in 2022, PLDT Home boosted its efforts to give customers the best digital experience at home by increasing the speeds of all its Fiber plans up to two times faster than previous speeds.

The PLDT Group, through its ICT subsidiary ePLDT, also provides data center, multi-cloud, and cybersecurity solutions that enable the digital transformation of large companies, Micros, and Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) to help drive the country’s inclusive economic growth. Leveraging PLDT’s advanced infrastructure, ePLDT is the country’s leading provider of data centers and multi-cloud managed service offerings.

According to Ookla, only a handful of internet service providers have won the prestigious award for five consecutive years worldwide and PLDT is the only telco in the Philippines that has ever achieved a five-peat for the highest award from Ookla. In Southeast Asia, only PLDT alongside Singapore’s ViewQWest has this honor.


Ookla’s Chief Technology Officer, Luke Deryckx, affirms PLDT’s superior network performance for the past five years. He says, “With over 18 million consumer-initiated tests taken daily and billions of data points gathered, the Ookla data paints a clear picture of the performance, quality, and availability of virtually every network in the world. We are proud to recognize PLDT’s hard work in providing the fastest Internet experience in the Philippines and celebrate their achievements in superior network performance over the last 5 years.”


With consistent wins at the Ookla® Speedtest Awards, PLDT also clocked the top speeds in major areas in the Philippines and bested all other major telco providers in 2022 including Pasig City, Cagayan de Oro, Baguio City, amongst others.


All these achievements are powered by PLDT’s widest fiber network in the country extending its reach to 17.2 million homes in 68% of the country’s cities and municipalities.
