Speedtest.net is one of the most popular online tools for people to measure their Internet speed and bandwidth. Every day, millions of users around the globe use this tool from their web browsers, mobile devices, and even smart TVs. Now, Speedtest launches an internet speed leaderboard that will be updated monthly, called Speedtest Global Index.
The Global Index takes data from the Internet speed tests in the specific month. According to Speedtest, they have over six thousand servers in more than 190 different countries. This huge, comprehensive infrastructure can ensure people’s ability to test their Internet using a local server. It therefore prevent inaccurate speed test results, when connecting cross-country servers.
A country’s ranking will only be included in the Speedtest Global Index, if it has got over 3,333 unique user results and over 670 unique user results for broadband and mobile network respectively. The rankings are determined by the country’s average Internet download speed. If you click an individual country’s name in the list, both its download and upload speeds, as well as a chart will be displayed to show the trend/improvement.
