The Country With the Fastest Internet Speed

How fast is your internet? How fast would it be if you lived in a different country? The web is, of course, worldwide, but internet speeds vary significantly by country. Generally, internet speeds are increasing worldwide. The average speed in 2018 was 9.10 Mbps, which is 1.7 Mbps higher than 2017’s average speed of 7.40 Mbps. That’s a 23% increase in average global internet speed. However, an increase in global speeds doesn’t mean the internet is getting faster for everybody equally. The top five countries when it comes to internet speed are Singapore, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Romania, with the United States not even falling in the top 10. Singapore tops the list with speeds of 148.62 Mbps. Compare that with the U.S. speed of 25.86 Mbps. Countries that rank the lowest include Cuba, Afghanistan, Palestine, Iraq and Algeria, with speeds of less than 6.9 Mbps. Not surprising, NASA has the world’s fastest internet, with a connection speed of 91 Gigabits per second, which is about 13,000 times faster than regular internet connection speed.
