India climbed three spots in the global ranking on the median mobile download speed index to register 14.28Mbps speed from the previous speed of 14.19Mbps in April, a new report by networking intelligence and testing company Ookla said on Monday. Apart from this, India’s ranking in the median download speeds on fixed broadband witnessed a fall from the previous speed of 48.09 Mbps in April to 47.86 in May.
India also improved in terms of global ranking for overall fixed median download speeds and rose from the 76th position in April to 75th in May.
“With this, the country is now three notches up in its global ranking and is at 115th position. India also improved its global ranking for overall fixed median download speeds, from 76th in April to 75th in May 2022,” the network testing company said in a statement.
Norway and Singapore got the top spots in terms of global mobile speeds and fixed broadband speeds, with a median download speed of 129.40 Mbps and 209.21 Mbps, respectively. The African countries, namely Cote d’Ivoire and Gabon and Congo registered the highest growth in mobile download speeds and fixed broadband speeds respectively in the month of May, the report showed.
In April, India had dropped four spots in rank globally for overall median fixed broadband speeds – from 72nd to 76th spot. The data for the Global Index came from hundreds of millions of tests taken by real people using Speedtest every month to test their Internet performance.
The report comes as Prime Minister Narendra Modi has launched the self-made 5G test bed in the country. The 6G service, he said, will be launched by the end of this decade, adding that a task force has already started working on the project
