The increase in connected devices has accelerated the conversion of ADSL lines to Optical fiber. We are surrounded by computers, cell phones and watches Smart TV And many other devices that require a good internet connection. For this, it is necessary for countries to commit to a large-scale deployment of optical fibers, not only in large capitals, but also in rural areas.
In recent years, Spain has become a world standard, ranking in 3rd place in fiber optic deployment. According to the latest report from the National Markets and Competition Commission, fiber optics reached more than 12 million lines in Spain at the end of last June. Thanks to these developments, our country is among the top 20 countries with the fastest Internet in the world. Cable.co.uk supports this in a study that analyzed 1.1 billion speed tests in 224 different countries. With the results obtained, the company has developed a speed indicator.
Europe and the United States top the rankings
In general, Western Europe (90.56 Mbps) and the United States are the regions of the world with the highest average internet speed. In fact, 34 of the 50 countries with the fastest connectivity are in Europe. In contrast, North Africa (5.68 Mbps), Latin America and South Asia are the regions where the speed is slower. However, the gap between one and the other has narrowed for the first time since 2017.
The country with the fastest internet is the island of Jersey, with an average speed of 274.27 Mbps, followed by countries like Liechtenstein, Iceland, Andorra, Gibraltar, Monaco, Macau and Luxembourg. On the other hand, Turkmenistan (0.50 Mbps), Yemen (0.68 Mbps), Ethiopia (1.20 Mbps) and Guinea-Bissau – in that order – have the slowest internet in the world. Therefore, most developed countries have better connection speed while countries with fewer resources are at the bottom of the ranking.
