Spain jumps 6 places in Akamai internet speed ranking

Wednesday 23 March 2016 | 09:15 CET | News
Spain has jumped six places in the latest State of the Internet report published by Akamai, having increased its average connection speed to 12.1 Mbps in the fourth quarter of 2015 compared to 8.2 Mbps the year earlier. The popularity of superfast fibre and cable offers also helped push the country's average peak connection speeds from 39 Mbps (42nd in the ranking) to 60 Mbps (23rd worldwide), said Akamai. Spain's telecoms regulator CNMC last week reported that the country's FTTH connections stood at almost 3.3 million at the end of January when 153,162 new lines were added.
