Top 10 countries with fastest internet connection

South Korea, the country with the fastest Internet speed


The Internet has become such a necessity for hundreds of millions of people worldwide, it is hard to believe that billions still live each day without scrolling through a Facebook feed or watching a YouTube video.

A lot of the people that have Internet connection do not enjoy the speed offered by Internet service providers, especially in parts of the world where oligopolies rule the web pipes.

This is seen most commonly in America, where despite having the most people online (151 million) it still lacks the average speed to make it into the top 10. Even the UK—marvelled by the US for its competitive Internet speeds—has missed the top 10 spot.

Finland
Finland noticed a large growth in Internet speeds this year, with a 33 per cent increase. It is one of the wealthiest countries in Europe, with high quality of life and education, but lacks some of the peak speeds other countries in Europe and Asia reach.

Czech Republic
While some may still point to the Czech Republic as a ruin of a country, the truth is it is one of the fastest growing regions in Europe with high education and quality of life levels. The Internet isn’t bad either, with 12.3Mbps average speed.

Ireland
Our neighbouring region, Ireland has a growing technology sector and Internet speeds to match, with an average speed of 12.7Mbps. It has seen 24 per cent growth in Internet speeds over the past year.

Latvia
Another region with a rather desolate past under the occupation of both Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, Latvia is starting to show a large amount of growth in all sectors. With an average Internet speed of 13Mbps, it takes the number one spot in East Europe.

Netherlands
Always one of the premier places for Internet dependency, The Netherlands has an average Internet speed of 14.2Mbps, a 15 per cent increase on the previous year.

Switzerland
Another small European country with an impressive Internet speed, Switzerland managed to hit 14.5Mbps average, a 21 per cent increase over the previous year.

Sweden
When it comes to Europe, Sweden has won the battle for average Internet speeds by a whisker, with 14.6Mbps average. Sweden has shown the most year-on-year growth with 34 per cent improvement, one per cent higher than neighbouring country Finland.

Japan
Known for many decades as the digital capital with giants like Sony, Toshiba and Nintendo, Japan has fallen out of the limelight slightly with the growth of China. Even with the spotlight off the country, it still maintains strong Internet speeds with an average 15.2Mbps.

Hong Kong
The highest growing country for Internet speeds, Hong Kong hit an average of 16.8Mbps with 37 per cent growth year-on-year.

South Korea
Still far and away the country with the fastest Internet speed, South Korea managed to hit 22.2Mbps, but that is only a 1.5 per cent increase on last year’s numbers.
