Countries with the fastest average mobile internet speed 2020

South Korea, China, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) boast some of the fastest average mobile internet connections in the world, with each of these countries registering average speeds in excess of 100 Mbps. South Korea was the fastest, with an average connection speed of 113.01 Mbps.

Fixed-connection speeds around the world

When it comes to fixed broadband connections, Singapore tops the list of countries by average connection speed. Internet users in Singapore achieve an average speed of 57.27 Mbps, significantly faster than the 48.52 Mbps achieved in Norway, the second-placed country on the speed rankings.

5G and 6G – the future of mobile broadband

In countries where it is in use, 5G is already bringing faster mobile internet connection speeds than ever before. In the United Kingdom (UK) for example, the average 4G connection speed sits at 25.9 Mbps, and this speed jumps to 133.5 Mbps on a 5G connection.
Now that 5G is commercially available, researchers have already turned their attention to 6G. Operating at a higher spectrum band, 6G will allow connections several times faster than 5G. User experienced data rates of 5G sit at 100 Mbps, and this speed is expected to climb to 1,000 Mbps. Not only faster, 6G will enable more devices to connect to a network without causing congestion, with a connection density ten times greater than that of 5G.
