PH Has Slowest Internet Connection in the World

Philippine Internet Download Speed

This is kind’a expected.

A study by internet monitoring firm Akamai found that the Philippines has the slowest average internet connection speed at 4.5 Mbps. India is a little ahead of our country at 5.6 Mbps.

Meanwhile, South Korea has the fastest average internet connection at 29.0 Mbps. It beat countries like Norway, Sweden, and Hong Kong whose speeds are up to 23.6 Mbps, 22.8 Mbps, and 21.9 Mbps, respectively.

South Korea’s internet connection speed is four times faster that the world average of 7.0 Mbps. Our country’s internet connection speed is below the world average. Moreover, the gap between South Korea’s speed (fastest) and ours (slowest) is roughly 22.0 Mbps.

USA, the country that invented the internet didn’t even make it at the top 10. It is at 16th place with speed of 15.3 Mbps.

What do you think should be done to boost our country’s internet connection speed?
