The internet bandwidth in the countries of the world

December 2016




In 2012, the global average Internet bandwidth was estimated at 2.9 Mb/s. Large disparities exist between different continents. Overview of the different Internet connection speeds in Europe and abroad.

The different measurement units


Several units of measurements are used to assess the speed of Internet connection:
  • Megabit per second: Mb/s,
  • Kilobits per second: Kb/s
  • Kilobytes per second: KB/s.These units are used to determine the amount of Internet data on a site (texts, photos, videos, etc..) that can be displayed in a second.


The display speed of a page depends on:
  • Weight (images, text ..etc)
  • The performance of the Internet connection.


The ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) and fiber optics connection are considered as the most effective solution to connect to the internet.
