Australia continues to drag the chain on internet speeds

Brian Karlovsky | April 24, 2014
Australia continues to lag behind the rest of the world in internet speeds, ranking 44th in the latest State of the Internet Report.

The smallest yearly increase among the top 10 was seen in Latvia, which added 11 per cent during the course of 2013. Report editor, David Belson, said the world had reached a significant milestone in the improvement of average connection speeds. "The fact that all of the top 10 countries/regions' average connection speeds are now at or exceeding the high broadband threshold — and continued strong growth in countries like South Korea and Ireland — is indicative of the progress that's being made in broadband penetration," he said.

"It's reasonable to expect these promising trends will continue to be reflected in future reports."
