In December 2015 the global average internet speed increased to 5.6 Mbps, an increase of 23 % year on year. India however, looks at the picture differently.

Internet speed

Akamai released a State of the Internet Report which states:

From a global perspective, the average connection speed increased 8.6 percent quarter-over-quarter (QoQ) and 23 percent year-over-year (YoY) to 5.6 Mbps, while the global average peak connection speed increased 1 percent QoQ, and increased 21 percent YoY to 32.5 Mbps,

South Korea tops the rank in APAC, with an average of 26.7 Mbps, India on the other hand has an average of 2.8 Mbps. South Korea (95.3 Mbps) and Macao (83.1 Mbps) show 10% and 13% growth year on year respectively.
