Despite a load on the internet due to the Work-from-home model, both mobile internet and fixed broadband speeds in India are improving. This is what Ookla’s latest Speedtest Global Index for June 2021 says.
It is revealed that India continues to improve in terms of internet speeds and has also improved its position in the Global internet speed ranking. Here are the details we have.
Internet speeds in India are improving
The Ookla report reveals that India now stands in the 70th position for fixed broadband speeds and 122nd position for mobile internet speeds for the month that went by.
India’s growth graph is seen moving upwards as its mobile internet speeds have increased for the third time in two months. While the fixed broadband speeds saw a decline in May, India managed to grow overall in this department. It saw an average fixed broadband speed of 5817Mbps, which is certainly more than the 66.65Mbps speeds in May 2021.
As for the mobile internet speed, June saw an average of 17.84Mbps, which increased from an average speed of 1534Mbps seen in May.
