Ookla is the company that operates Speedtest, one of the most popular applications/sites for measuring Internet connection speed, published the conclusions of the Speedtest Global Index rating for the period from November 2021 to November 2022. During the year, the speed of the mobile Internet in the world increased by 17%, and the speed of the wired Internet in general by 28%.
During the year top-10 countries with the fastest Internet almost did not change, but some of it the participants switched places. Quite surprisingly, the fastest wired Internet in the world is… in Chile – 216.46 Mbps. Places from second to fifth by Asian countries are China, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong. The USA is only in 6th place, and Romania closes the top ten.
As for Ukraine, which 8-10 years ago was in the top 10 countries with the fastest Internet, now it is only… in 67th place and has lost two more positions in a year. The average download speed in our country is 3.5 times lower than in Chile – only 60.00 Mbps. On the other hand, it is only slightly less than Italy (60.12 Mbps) and better than Oman (59.74 Mbps).
As for mobile Internet, Qatar, which made a significant upgrade of cellular network ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, is far ahead. Currently, the average mobile download speed in Qatar is 176.18 Mbps. The United Arab Emirates, which occupies the second position, is significantly behind – 139.41 Mbps. Among the neighboring countries of Ukraine, only Bulgaria is in the Top 10 – 103.29 Mbps.
