With a solid one-third of the Earth’s population connected to the Internet, the speed and quality of one’s Internet connection is more important than ever. Everyone has dealt with the annoyance of a painfully slow Internet connection, and when you’re trying to get something done, slow Internet can feel like more than just a minor setback. While in reality, slow Internet isn’t the worst thing in the world, it’s interesting to take note that, for some places in the world, the Internet does move markedly faster than in others.
In some countries, the Internet speeds make even downloading HD movies quick and painless, while in others you may find yourself waiting for days just to fully download your favorite Adele song. Populous nations, like China and India, tend to have slower connection speeds, while less densely populated countries like Finland tout some of the best Internet connections on the planet. In a time when more and more people are considering high-speed Internet a necessity rather than a luxury, it’s interesting to see which nations are truly delivering on that principle. The following infographic takes a look at some of the world’s Internet speeds: Who’s fast, who’s slow, who does it cheapest and who does it overall best.
