Internet performance and speed test site Speedtest (a platform we Filipinos are much too familiar with) has just released its Global Index 2021. The big conclusion this year? Internet all over the world is getting faster… not just broadband but also mobile.
“The global mean of download speeds improved over the last 12 months on both mobile and fixed broadband to 55.07 Mbps and 107.50 Mbps, respectively, in July 2021. Mobile saw an increase of 59.5% when comparing July 2020 to July 2021 and fixed broadband saw an increase of 31.9%, according to the Speedtest Global Index,” researchers said.
Of course, not all countries are the same. South Korea and the United Arab Emirates are, by far, the luckiest with mobile download speeds and fixed broadband downloads.
Check out the top 10 countries with the fastest mobile internet below.
