Posted on 29-Jan-2014 08:17 by Bill Bennett | Tags Filed under: Articles


Akamaiís latest State of the Internet report notes New Zealandís average broadband connection speed was †5.1 Mbps in the third quarter of 2013.

While thatís an improvement of 31 percent on a year earlier it still means New Zealand ranks at position 46 in the global league table a long way behind South Korea where broadband speeds average 22.1 Mbps. Australia comes in at 43 with average speeds of 5.5 Mbps.

The global average broadband speed is 3.6 Mbps.

Akamaiís survey takes data gathered from users connected to Akamaiís global server network and compares countries against each other to produce league tables.

Peak connection speeds in New Zealand are now 20.5 Mbps. This puts us at number 57 in the global table. †Australia is in the 30th spot with 30.1 Mbps.

New Zealand is 43rd globally for broadband penetration.
