Some insights from the service of two of our top Telco providers
Between Globe and Smart, which provides better service? Based on OpenSignal’s September 2017 report, it turns out that Smart provides better download speeds than Globe–for LTE download speeds and overall download speeds. While Globe has better 4G coverage at 62.59% (versus Smart’s 52.71%), Smart has better LTE download speeds at 9.87Mbps (compared to Globe’s 7.42 Mbps). The same can be said with overall download speed: Smart is faster at 4.16Mbps (compared to Globe’s 3.82Mbps).
OpenSignal added that Smart’s improved performance can be credited to their increased LTE coverage, which has jumped by 12 percent since March. You can read on OpenSignal’s report here.
