Smart is once again the operator to beat in the Philippines. This time around it has snapped up 11 out of a possible 16 awards — including all those for download speed and users’ experience when playing multiplayer mobile games or using over-the-top voice apps on cellular connections. DITO comes top for both Upload Speed Experience and Availability, while Globe wins the 5G Video Experience award and both awards for consistent quality,” according to the research.
