Gathered on November 1, 2019, to January 29, 2020, and based on 659,883,359 measurements from 288,492 devices, the data revealed that Smart delivers a “fair” video experience as it scored 55 points, that is a 15.6% increase over the last report. On the other hand, Globe recorded just 39.8 points out of 100, which puts it into the "poor" category or just 0.3 points shy to be in the "fair" classification.

Meanwhile, on OpenSignal’s 4G-only Video Experience scale, Smart is still the clear winner with 62.4 on a 0-100 scale, which makes it in the "Good" category. Under this rating means that Smart provides its subscribers with faster loading times and less stuttering, even in higher resolutions. Meanwhile, Globe scored 43.7, which makes it into the "Fair" category, meaning, the video experience for its subscribers is acceptable at lower resolutions.

“We’ve managed to stay ahead of the growth of our data traffic by continuing to invest heavily in our network,” explained Mario G. Tamayo, senior vice president for Network Planning and Engineering for PLDT and Smart.
“Of course, we had no idea that something like COVID-19 was coming.  But, in a sense, our network expansion efforts were, shall we say, providential.  At least, during this rather difficult period, we can help people come together in prayer to seek God’s blessings and help,” Panlilio said.
