THE fourth annual edition of the Digital Quality of Life Index (DQL) reports that the quality of digital life in the Philippines ranks 55th in the world and 14th in Asia. The country dropped by seven positions since last year's edition, falling from 48th to 55th this year.

The DQL study conducted by the cybersecurity company Surfshark evaluates countries' DQL based on five fundamental digital well-being pillars, namely internet quality, e-government, e-infrastructure, internet affordability and e-security. Out of the five index pillars, the Philippines' weakest spot is internet affordability, (ranking 98th globally), and its best score is for e-security (44th). The Philippines' internet quality services come 45th, while e-government and e-infrastructure rank 62nd and 65th, respectively.
