See The 10 Countries With The Fastest Internet In The World.

31 Jul

Electronic devices are things that we use
every day and has a huge influence on
our daily life. Especially the Internet is
becoming more and more important for
nearly everybody, probably more
important than the devices themselves,
and is now our most preferred means of
everyday communication.
However, to enjoy the uninterrupted
services of the internet, you need to
have good connectivity. There are two
important metrics in bandwidth
allocation (measured in Megabits per
second or Mbps): download and upload
speed, denoting the speed of inbound
and outbound data respectively.
The average web page loads at 6.3
Mbps universally, a number that
denotes how many million bits of data
can be moved in a second.
While 6.3 mbps is quick enough to send
an email or watch a Netflix show, it’s
still very slow.
Akamai Technologies, a Massachusetts-
based internet provider, did a study on
how the internet speeds measure up in
countries worldwide. The company
releases a report every quarter that
ranks countries as per their internet
speed.
According to them, here are the top 10
countries, which are mentioned in
descending order of net connectivity.
1. South Korea
According to the Akami report, people
in South Korea enjoy the fastest
internet in the world. The country’s
average internet speed measures 29
Mbps, which is 4.6 times as quick as the
global average.
To put things in perspective, the
average HD film is about 5,000 MB. A
computer could download that in a little
over two and a half minutes at 29 MBps
speed.
In spite of more than 80% of South
Korean households have access to some
of the world’s fastest internet
connections, they face usage limitations.
Several internet users have to face
strong internet censorship in South
Korea, according to a report released
last year by the nonprofit Freedom
House.
2. Norway.
Norway witnessed the biggest growth
(68%) in internet speed at 21.3 MBps
since last year in comparison to any
other country in the top 10. At this
speed, a computer could upload or
download about five high-quality photos
per second.
3. Sweden.
Sweden’s internet offers an average of
20.6 MBps, which means that many
people hardly face any experience
delays, even if they have multiple
applications running that use a lot of
bandwidth.
Since last year, the country has noticed
a 32% increase in speed.
4. Hong Kong
Hong Kong was the first country in the
world to hit 60 Mbps in 2013. Today, its
residents enjoy an average internet
speed of 19.9 MBps.
5. Switzerland
The internet in Switzerland rises at an
average 18.7 MBps, a 25% increase
from last year.
