In this day and age, check out the behavior of youngsters in developing as well as developed countries and you would find that most of them would be hooked on a mobile device at one time or another. We are living in a connected age, and if you were to bring your kids or teens for a holiday at a place with no Wi-Fi connectivity, they would most probably groan and wonder what is there one can do in this place called “the great outdoors”. Research firm Akamai Technologies has done some bit of homework to study the fastest Internet connections in the world, and Hong Kong leads the way with a 65.4 Mbps connection, edging out on its nearest competitor, South Korea, by 1.8 Mbps.
Japan and Singapore are placed at third and fourth respectively, where they both clocked an average of more than 50 Mbps each. Taiwan is eighth on the list, which would be the fifth nation in Asia to have a place the top 10. Israel is placed fifth in the top 10 list thanks to a massive 55% increase in improvement compared to 2012., while the other top 10 countries hail from Europe including Latvia, the Netherlands and Belgium. Where does the U.S. stand in this study? 13th, which ain’t too shabby considering the huge landmass of the U.S.
