Improved broadband is key to a successful hybrid work in PH — Cisco

The majority of Filipinos — or about 91% — believe that broadband services need to “dramatically improve” to make permanent hybrid work possible in the country.

In Cisco’s Broadband Index survey, 86% of Filipino respondents said that they actively use their home broadband for four hours or more each day. 

Meanwhile, 48% of the Philippine’s workforce are currently relying on their home internet to work from home or run their own business.
