Portugal plummets down broadband speed rankings

in News · 12-07-2018 14:31:00 · 0 Comments

Portugal has slipped 12 places in an annual league table of global broadband speeds, putting it below the likes of Madagascar and Slovenia, but ahead of the UK, which dropped four places to 35th on the rankings.

An analysis of more than 160 million broadband speed tests conducted across 200 countries revealed Singapore was once again the world’s fastest country, followed by Sweden, Denmark and Norway, while Yemen came last.
According to the research conducted by Cable.co.uk, which provides expert advice on broadband, tv and phone packages, and whose findings were published by the Guardian this week, Portugal has dropped from its position of 17th in 2017 to 29th this year.
The ranking is composed by calculating the average download speed, how long it would take to download a 5GB HD movie using this average speed and the mean download speed measured across the previous 12-month period.
Tracking broadband speed measurements in 200 countries, multiple 12-month periods have revealed that the global average speed is rising quickly.
The average global broadband speed measured during the period from 11 May 2016 to 10 May 2017 was 7.40Mbps. The average global broadband speed measured during the period from 30 May 2017 to 29 May 2018 was 9.10Mbps – a rise of 23 percent.
The top of the table is dominated by Europe. Of the top 50 countries, 36 of them are in Europe.
Singapore ranked as the world’s fastest country for the second year running, with average speeds of 60.39Mbps, while last-placed Yemen had an average speed of 0.31Mbps.
