Internet speed and connectivity tester Ookla released its analysis of the global market last month, ranking all countries in terms of the fastest mobile and fixed broadband internet speeds.

Countries are classified according to their Speed ​​score, which incorporates a measure of the total upload and download speed of each country to rank network performance (90% of the final speed score is assigned to download speed and the remaining 10% to download speed, because online experiences are generally more affected by download speed).

Ookla emphasizes median speeds, as they represent what most mobile internet customers will experience on a daily basis.
