    Is he on pure fiber? Globe on paper only provides half the upload speeds of your subscribed plans (correct me if this isn’t the case anymore). If he’s on 50mbps plan, then getting 18-25 seems to be right.

    VDSL can’t do fiber-level uploads as well.

    Yes, Globe's default plans are asymmetric; I was told upload speeds are around 40% only of download speeds: for my former 50mbps plan, I get 50 download-20upload speeds.

    Globe fiber now has symmetric download/upload speed. I pay 2499 for 50mbps download but I get 80-90mbps download and 50mbps upload.

    Yup. That’s true. Just had my plan upgraded from vdsl to fiber. This is the speed I got after the upgrade. By the way, this is Plan 2499. (y)

    Yes it is normal for Globe to have asymmetric speeds. As for the speedtest, that's a glitch on Globe's part. A week after it normalized.

    Right now I get 70D/50U on Globe.

    My PLDT Fibr is symmetric though at 100D/100U.

    Globe doesn't have symmetric speeds their DL is always more than the UL.

    I think you can request for symmetric speeds, but as an add-on cost, and only up to their 100mbps plans. Beyond 100mbps, they only offer asymmetric speeds, unless I think it's a dedicated (leased?) line, which is a lot more expensive.

    Some accounts, especially those on fiber, are already symmetric. My sister's account has 30/30 speeds.
