The infrastructure upon which the whole phenomenon of internet depends has been reshaping rather fast. With better machines and more advanced techniques, the speeds of internet have been going up all over the world. According to a new report by Akamai, the average global internet speeds have gone up by 14% over the course of last one year.


The report released by Akamai is titled ‘The State of Internet’ and can be read here. In its past reports, Akamai has been using the term ‘narrowband’ to refer to such internet connections which use speeds of 256Kpbs or lower. With the explosive growth of high-speed connections, however, such low-speed connections are becoming far and few. And so, Akamai has abandoned the use of ‘narrowband’ now.

According to this report, speeds of the internet have gone up nearly all over the world, except South Korea. But South Korea already enjoys faster internet, with the average speed clocking at a whopping 15.7 Mbps. United States, in comparison, has an average internet speed of 6.7Mbps, putting it squarely on the 12th position globally.

The report states, “Long term trends were once again very positive, reflecting a continuing shift toward higher speed connectivity. All of the top 10 countries, as well as the United States, experienced positive year-over-year changes in average connection speeds.”

When it comes to peak speed rates, Hong Kong was able to clinch the top spot with its 49.3Mbps where South Korea came a close second with 47.8 Mbps. On this measure, United States stood at the 8th position with a peak speed rate of 28.7 Mbps.

The report further observes, “Looking at year-over-year changes, the global average peak connection speed was once again up by 25% as compared to the same period a year ago. Extremely strong yearly increases were seen across all of the top 10 countries, with Belgium having the lowest growth rate at 18%. Globally, nearly 130 qualifying countries saw year-over-year increases in average connection speeds, ranging from 3.8% growth in Pakistan (to 5.9 Mbps) to a 213% jump in Libya (to 3.8 Mbps). Only five countries saw a yearly   decline in average peak connection speed, with the greatest loss in Tanzania, which dropped 21% (to 5.1 Mbps).”
