The need for a faster and reliable internet service provider (ISP) in the Philippines has been constantly expressed time and again. Netizens have called for ISPs to improve their services, and urged the government to open the market for foreign ISPs such as Telstra.
With all these, however, not much has changed in the speeds for regular internet connection packages that the country’s major players provide.
For urban areas, there’s very little problem in connectivity. Subscribers in other provinces, however, have to find out for themselves as to which ISP would serve them best in their area.
The following are the best internet providers in the Philippines, taking into account the limited connection that we currently have.
Each of these company’s reliability, speed, customer service, and price vary per internet package, location, and the areas they service. Find out which ones fit your needs.
