    In the month of June, India fell 3 ranks both in mobile and fixed broadband speed performance in Ookla released updates to its Speedtest Global Index. The country ranks 74th in fixed broadband speeds and 126th in mobile internet speeds globally.India’s performance in both fixed broadband and mobile download speeds have witnessed a dip as compared to performance in last month. During May, India ranked at 71 in fixed broadband and 123 in mobile speeds.

    On the internet speeds front, there has been a slight decline since the previous month as the current average mobile download speeds in India are 10.87 Mbps and 29.06 Mbps in fixed broadband speeds. The mobile and fixed broadband speeds in May were 11.02 Mbps and 30.03 Mbps respectively.

    Comparing data to that of last year, India’s rank has witnessed a significant decline in terms of its position globally. In July 2018, India ranked 111 in mobile and 56 in fixed broadband speeds.

    Referencing the Speedtest Global Index, Doug Suttles, Co-Founder and General Manager at Ookla said “An ever-evolving focus on sophisticated network infrastructure will always be important for fixing network quality in India. India is one of the geographically largest and most populated country in the world, meaning a well laid out network that is able to handle high volumes of usage is a key in supporting the internet needs of the Indian market. Despite these challenges in India (high population, large geography, high density), further advancements in both 4G and 5G network technology will continue to improve network efficiency.”

    The June Speedtest Global Index shows South Korea at pole position in the world for mobile internet with an average download speed of 90.06 Mbps. Singapore still holds the top spot for fixed broadband with a 195.88 Mbps average download.

    Ookla’s Speedtest Global Index compares internet speed data from around the world monthly. Data for the Index comes from the hundreds of millions of tests taken by real people using Speedtest every month. The company has 40 million active users in India conducting over 800,000 tests a day.
