The speed improvement was attributed to President Rodrigo Duterte’s support for better telecommunication infrastructures. Last year, the President directed government agencies to streamline the process of issuance of tower permits to speed up the building of telecommunications towers.

Since 2017, the Philippines has also climbed its way up to the global internet speed ranking.
