Internet Speeds By Country 2019

In today’s modern world, we use the internet more than ever. Kids use the internet to do research for school, to chat with friends, or to watch funny videos. As adults, we can do the same and so much more – paying bills, working remotely, or even meeting new friends and love interests.

The internet of today is faster than ever thanks to new technologies. This faster internet allows us to watch TV shows and movies on our phones, download large files and collaborate with teammates, or pull up multiple tabs to multitask. In developed nations, gone are the days where we have to hear the screech of a dial-up modem, get booted every time a family member picks up the phone, or deal with downloads that take hours – or days.

If you’ve invested in the fastest internet in your neighborhood, you may be surprised to learn that other nations around the world have even faster speeds. Even if you’re paying a premium price for a top-tier service, some of the fastest internet speeds in the world may not even be available in your country.

According to Ookla – a company that specializes in internet speed testing – internet speeds rose by an average 30% in 2017. As technology becomes more advanced and networks are improved, these numbers are expected to continue to grow.

Based on data from Ookla, Singapore is the nation with the fastest broadband download speeds. Internet speeds in this country are 153.85 Mbps. This is more than double that of the United States, which has broadband download speeds of 75.94 Mbps.

Another nation with fast broadband speeds is Iceland. The download speeds of this nation are 147.51 Mbps. Hong Kong is also high on the list with broadband download speeds of 133.94 Mbps. South Korea has broadband speeds of 127.45 Mbps. The last nation with broadband speeds exceeding 100 Mbps is Romania, which has download speeds of 104.46 Mbps.

Ordered by fastest speeds, other countries with the best internet are:

Hungary: 92.47 Mbps Macau: 87.14 Mbps Sweden: 84.11 Mbps Netherlands: 81.46 Mbps Switzerland: 80.62 Mbps Lithuania: 75.94 Mbps United States: 75.94 Mbps Denmark: 75.42 Mbps

This list is different when considering mobile internet speeds. The fastest mobile download speeds can be found in Norway, where mobile internet has speeds of 62.66 Mbps. The Netherlands also have fast mobile internet with speeds of 53.01 Mbps. Iceland, Singapore, and Malta all have speeds that exceed 50 Mbps.

Nations with speeds that are higher than 40 Mbps include:

Australia Hungary South Korea United Arab Emirates Denmark Luxembourg Belgium New Zealand
