Internet Speeds Around The World

InternetSpeed

The speed of internet access everywhere has improved dramatically over the past decade. With an emphasis on broadband internet and fixed fiber optic connections, speed is constantly changing. We would like to look at the development of the internet speed around the world.  The first International Conference on the World Wide Web (WWW) was conducted in 1994. In 1995, internet penetration was very limited: about 0.04% of the world’s population had access to the internet, mostly with the United States accounting for more than half of that number. In less than two decades, this small percentage rose to 41%. Needless to say, plain text files made up the majority of the data shared electronically in the early 1990s. However, shortly after the World Wide Web’s introduction, the internet evolved into more than just text that dominated the online landscape in the decades that followed.

Now, the increasing resolution of video content being streamed would fuel the need for faster fixed connections, and activities that were previously performed solely on desktop computers and fixed connections a decade ago will transition to smartphones, with an emphasis on apps that run entirely on a remote server. Hence, increased access to high-speed Internet results in significant economic development and job creation. High-speed networks help businesses to generate more revenue rapidly by developing new avenues for growth, expansion, and e-commerce.
