Hyderabad became the first Indian city to get 1 Gbps internet connectivity, courtesy of ACT Fibernet, making it the first time we’ve received city-wide coverage of that kind of speed anywhere in India. So who exactly were the reigning champions before then? And just how do we stand up to the rest of the world?
Here is the list of the top 5 cities with highest internet speed :-
Seoul, the capital of South Korea, grabbed the top spot for fastest internet in 2016, measuring in at an average of 26.1 Mbps. Some of the fastest connections in the city offer up to 1.5 Gbps speeds.
2. Hong Kong
Hong Kong comes in second place, with the country’s financial capital showing an average of 21.9 Mbps across services.
Called the most “tech-ready nation” by the World Economic Forum, Singapore comes in at a close third, with 20.2 Mbps being the average download speed.
The most populous metropolitan area in the world and capital of Japan, Tokyo, comes in fourth with an average 19.6 Mbps broadband speed.
The island nation of Taiwan, often in contention with the government of the People’s Republic of China over its status, brings up fifth place with a 15.6 Mbps download speed average.
On paper, India does fairly well for itself if you just look at the top cities in the country. We average out at about 13.271 Mbps in download speeds across the nation, but which cities rate the best?
