According to the results of a survey recently conducted by Akamai, the United States ranks 28th among countries across the globe with the fast mobile Internet connection speeds during the first three months of this year. While a 28th ranking out of a total of 62 countries is not bad (it is easily the best in the North, Central, and South American regions), the US finds itself below other countries such as Greece, Egypt, and even Estonia.
According to the latest quarterly State of the Internet report (for the first quarter of 2016) released by Akamai, global average connection speed has risen 12 percent compared to the final quarter of 2015, to 6.3 mbps. Compared to the average connection speed during the first quarter of 2015, this represents a 23 percent improvement year over year.
