Meanwhile, overall mobile speed, including 3G and 2G connections, was at 6.3 mbps in the period.

Although overall mobile speed was lower than WiFi, OpenSignal stressed LTE connection would soon overtake WiFi.

Today, there are still many countries where WiFi continues to offer a faster download experience for smartphone users, although this is likely to change as newer mobile network generations launch imminently.

Despite this, OpenSignal noted WiFi will still exist amid the fact that it offers lower cost, supports more devices, and with less limits on capacity.

Both Globe and Smart have been aggressively deploying LTE sites across the country as to provide better internet connectivity.
