DHAKA: Bangladesh ranks 10th in low Download Speed Experience, where smartphone users enjoyed average mobile Download Speeds over 5.7 Mbps, according to Opensignal in its latest analysis.
According to its report “The State of Mobile Network Experience”, South Korea was the only country to score over 50 Mbps in Download Speed Experience, with the majority of countries scoring in the 10-20 Mbps range across our users.
Iraq is the lowest position in internet speed with 1.6 Mbps. However, Bangladesh ranks 10th in the list with 5.7 Mbps speed, said Opensignal, the independent global standard for analyzing consumer mobile experience.
India and Pakistan are in a better position than Bangladesh. India is ranked 14th (6.8 Mbps) and Pakistan is ranked 12th (6.2 Mbps). All countries with speeds below 10 Mbps are a total of 20 countries.
On the eve of 5G’s launch, South Korea was the only country where smartphone users enjoyed average mobile Download Speeds over 50 Mbps, although Norway was close behind with 48.2 Mbps.
Then there was a bit of a drop in speeds to the next two countries, Canada and the Netherlands, where we measured Download Speed Experience at just over 42 Mbps.
The remaining six of the top 10 markets scored in the 33- 40 Mbps range.
The global average score of the 87 countries we analyzed was 17.6 Mbps — barely a third of the top score.
It also stated that Canada's impressive third place is little surprise, since our most recent report on Canada found our users on all three operators experienced over 35 Mbps in Download Speed Experience, while speeds of over 60 Mbps weren't uncommon in the country's biggest cities.
We examined 87 countries and compared their performance across all five of our key award metrics: 4G Availability, Video Experience, Download and Upload Speed Experience, and Latency Experience.
OpenSignal analysis also showed that the average 4G Availability across the 87 countries experienced by our users is close to 80%, with 15 markets scoring over the 90% mark.
“The top ends of our tables were largely dominated by European countries, but no one country appeared in the top 10 for all five of our key metrics. European countries, however, dominated, racking up far more top 10 entries than any other region”, it added.
