The overall average of up to 2.6 Mbps in the first quarter, 25% higher than that recorded during the same period last year, the report “State of the Internet” Akamai. South Korea is pushing rates up an average speed of 15.7 Mbps, while in average connections are for just the 2 Mbps

The top 10 countries with the best connection speed is as follows:

Brazil 2.2 Mbps

Colombia 2.7 Mbps
Mexico 2.8 Mbps

If your country is not listed above, it is because I was not in the study. For Spanish friends we read, the average speed recorded in that country during the first quarter amounted to 4.6 Mbps

Another interesting thing is the amount of people who have connections on 4 Mbps While in Japan, 72% of the population has a 4 Mbps connection over in South Korea 86% and the U.S. reaches 60% in Latin America things are like this:

The study also notes a rise in traffic for attacks, originating mainly in the Asia-Pacific (42%). Europe was the source of 35% of attacks, while the rest comes from Latin (Africa scored only 1.5% of attacks). China appears in the first launch attacks with 16% followed by USA with 11%.

We also analyzed the rates of mobile connections, where Germany is left with the crown of the fastest mobile broadband with an average speed of 6 Mbps in Latin America, the moving speed was lowest in Bolivia (473 Kbps) while the Argentina has the highest with 2.6 Mbps
