I'm from the Philippines. I have a PLDT connection. My download speed at speedtest goes up to 1183kB/s but my download speed only reaches 300kB/s. Is there something wrong with my internet connection? How can I reach my speedtest download speed?

There are a great deal of things that go into transfer speeds. Speedtest and similar websites use sites that are close to you, in order to show you the best possible result. Your ISP, or any other intermediate ISP could be constraining/limiting the maximum transfer rates for your data transfer. It could also be the upload speed from the remote host that is limiting the connections transfer speed. It could be a lot of other things.
It takes significant technical skill with the technology, using various tools, to work out where the problem is. You need to be able to use tools like netstat, ping, pingplotter, and traceroute/tracert, and understand networking topology.
For us to help you more, you need to provide latency results from ping, and traceroute transcripts to workout where your problem lies.
