Bengaluru: Though India posted a sharp rise in internet speed compared to last year with a 54% rise to 3.6 Mbps in Q2 2016, still India is at the bottom among Asia Pacific countries on the internet speed parameter. Global average internet speed decreased 2.3% from the first quarter of 2016 to 6.1 Mbps, a 14% increase year over year while global average peak connection speed increased 3.7% to 36.0 Mbps in the second quarter, rising 2.5% year over year. These trends are revealed by the Akamai Technologies Second Quarter, 2016 State of the Internet Report.     

Average connection speed of in India stands at 3.6 Mbps in Q2 2016 compared to global average speed of 6.1 Mbps. India’s peak connection is 26.1 Mbps compared to global average peak connection of 36.0 Mbps, as per the Akamai Technologies Second Quarter, 2016 State of the Internet Report.  In the world South Korea posted the highest speed in internet with average speed of 27 Mbps.  China recorded average internet speed of 5.2  Mbps in Q2 2016.

The USA registered average speed of 15.3 Mbps while the UK had an average speed of 15.1 Mbps. Global 10 Mbps broadband adoption rate grew 0.7% quarter over quarter, but 15 Mbps and 25 Mbps broadband adoption rates fell 0.8% and 2.1%, respectively.

“The continued increase in average connection speeds is a reassuring trend as online retailers prepare for the busy holiday shopping season,” said David Belson, editor of Akamai’s State of the Internet Report. “However, recent Internet disruptions caused by everything from government-ordered blackouts to a lone monkey sparking a widespread outage are reminders of the many factors that can affect access to and use of the Internet that is so often taken for granted.”

Based on data gathered from the Akamai Intelligent Platform, the report provides insight into key global statistics such as connection speeds, broadband adoption metrics, notable Internet disruptions, IPv4 exhaustion and IPv6 implementation.
