Internet Speeds In India Increase By 99 Per Cent

India’s average internet connection speed in 2016 increased by a whopping 99 percent as compared to 2015. Globally, Internet connection speed increased 12 percent to 7Mbps in the fourth quarter of 2016 a 26 percent increase year on year.

This data comes from content delivery network services provider Akamai Technologies’ State of the Internet report for Q4 2016. The report includes data gathered from across the Akamai Intelligent Platform about traffic, broadband adoption, mobile connectivity and other relevant topics concerning the Internet.

The report offers global statistics like connection speeds, broadband adoption metrics and notable Internet disruptions which help give key insights into the state of the internet across the world.

India’s statistics are also on offer though the country still lacks quite a way behind the global average, it has seen a significant rise in average internet connection speeds year on year.

In Q4 2016, the average internet connection speed in India was 5.6Mbps a 36 percent rise quarter to quarter and a stellar 99 percent increase year on year.

38 % of internet connections in India were above 4Mbps a 26% rise quarter on quarter and a 123 percent rise year on year.

14% of internet connections in India were above 10Mbps a 116 percent rise quarter on quarter and a massive 123 percent rise year on year.

A meager 7.3% connections were above 15Mbps a 179 percent rise year on year.

Rather disappointingly, India and Philippines had the lowest average connection speeds amongst surveyed Asia Pacific countries. A major reason for this can be Indian telecommunications regulator TRAI’s recent mandate which fixed the minimum download speed for broadband providers at a measly 512Kbps.

On a positive note, Bharti Airtel rolled out its V-Fiber broadband service which offers speeds of up to 100Mbps.

Global average connection speed increased 12% to 7.0 Mbps in 2016, a 26% year on year increase.

South Korea had the highest average connection speed globally at 26.1 Mbps.

In the United States, the the District of Columbia had the highest average connection speed at 26.7 Mbps.

David Belson, editor of the State of the Internet report said “Internet connection speeds continued to show positive long term trends around the world, with particularly strong year over year increases across all broadband adoption metrics.”
