India gained three places on the global scale of average mobile speeds and reached 115th place with 14.28 Mbps in May, slightly better than 14.19 Mbps in April, a new report showed on Monday.
India has also improved its global ranking in terms of overall fixed average transmission speeds, from 76th in April to 75th in May, reports Ookla, head of network intelligence and connectivity.
However, India’s performance at medium transmission speeds on the fixed broadband network declined slightly, from 48.09 Mbps in April to 47.86 in May.
Norway and Singapore are at the forefront of global mobile speeds and fixed broadband speeds, with average transfer speeds of 129.40 Mbps and 209.21 Mbps, respectively.
African countries, namely Côte d’Ivoire and Gabon and Congo, recorded the highest growth in mobile speeds and fixed broadband speeds in May, the report said.
In April, India fell four places in the world in terms of overall average fixed broadband speeds – from 72nd to 76th.
Data for the Global Index came from hundreds of millions of tests conducted each month by real people who used Speedtest to test their Internet performance.
The report comes when Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched his own 5G test station in the country.
According to him, the 6G service will be launched by the end of this decade, adding that the project team has already started working on the project.
