#1

Content delivery network services provider Akamai Technologies released its Fourth Quarter, 2015 State of the Internet report. Based on data gathered from the Akamai Intelligent Platform, the report provides insight into key global statistics such as connection speeds, broadband adoption metrics, notable Internet disruptions, IPv4 exhaustion and IPv6 implementation.

“This quarter’s report shows great year-over-year growth in average connection speeds and overall broadband adoption,” noted David Belson, editor of the State of the Internet Report. “This is particularly important as consumer expectations rise and many high-profile events, like the summer games in Rio, will be streamed this year. The progress we’re seeing across our key metrics shows that, while there’s still work to be done, more parts of the world are increasingly able to support the delivery of broadcast-quality video content online.”

The report revealed that global average connection speed increased 8.6% to 5.6 Mbps from the third quarter, a 23% increase year-over-year. South Korea had the top average connection speed at 26.7 Mbps, while India was the slowest in the Asia Pacific region with average speeds of 2 Mbps. The peak speed in India was also lower than South Korea’s average — at 21.2 Mbps. Also, in the fourth quarter of 2015, 32% of unique IP addresses across the world connected to Akamai at average speeds above 10 Mbps, an increase of 15% over the previous quarter. Year-over-year, this was a 34% increase.

Sharing statistics on IPv4 and IPv6, the report says that the number of unique, worldwide IPv4 addresses had a slight increase of 0.2% to just over 810 million addresses. On a global basis, close to 70% of the countries/regions saw a quarter-over-quarter increase in unique IPv4 address counts in the fourth quarter, up 10% from the third quarter. Belgium again maintained a clear lead, with 37% of content requests being made over IPv6, up from 35% in the third quarter. France (11%) posted the largest quarter-over-quarter gain with 113%.

When it comes to mobile connectivity, the report places United Kingdom on top with the fastest average mobile connection speed at 26.8Mbps, and Spain in second place at 14.0 Mbps. Iran had the lowest average connection speed, at 1.3 Mbps, followed by Vietnam with an average connection speed of 1.8 Mbps. In the fourth quarter, Finland and Australia led the world with 99% 4 Mbps adoption rates, followed closely by Sweden with 98% adoption.
