Global Fixed Broadband Internet Performance
BanklessTimes estimated the global median download speed in the fixed broadband category to be 63.46 Mbps. The median download speed for the same category is 27.06 Mbps. The median latency is 10 Mbps.

The median download speed increased steadily from April 2021 to April 2022. In 2021 it was 48.42 Mbps, while in April 2022 it was 63.46 Mbps, registering a difference of 15.04 Mbps at 31.06%.

The median download Internet speed followed the same trend, increasing from 19.60 Mbps in April 2021 to 27.06 Mbps in April 2022. This figure brings the change in median annual data speed to 7.46 Mbps. Therefore, the annual percentage change in median download data speed is 38.06%.

The latency rate has not seen rapid changes over the past year. For example, from April 2021 to August 2021, it remained constant at 11 ms. However, it dropped to 10ms from September 2021 to April 2022. This represents a 9.09% improvement over the past year.
