Video calls, digital classrooms, home fitness classes and streaming series. What do they have in common? A stable and fast Internet connection. On the occasion of Europe Day, which is celebrated today, Monday, May 9, 2022, we take a look at the international Internet speeds, but also at the ranking of Cyprus.
Who are the World Leaders?
In which countries do Internet lines “shine” the most? Ookla Internet speed ranking will give us the answer. The operators of the well-known website Speedtest.net recorded the connection speeds around the world and chose Singapore, for another year, as the winner in Speedtest Global Index (March 2022). The average downstream speed is at the incredible number of 197.97 Mbps. The upstream speed is at 166.31 Mbps.
A look at Europe
The first ranked EU member state in the list is Denmark with downstream 170.38 Mbps and 94.52 Mbps upstream. At this rate, Denmark ranks 4th in the Ookla world rankings. The other European countries represented in the top 10 are Monaco (6th) and Spain (10th). Residents of these two European countries enjoy the Internet at about 158 and 136 Mbps respectively (downstream).
What is the situation in Cyprus?
What is the picture in Cyprus? In terms of fixed broadband, things are not very encouraging, as we have dropped to 100the position in the world rankings, with just 30.13 Mbps average downstream speed and 11.32 Mbps upstream.
On the contrary, the results in mobile broadband are getting better and better, with the result that Cyprus occupies the 15ththe position with an average speed of 75.48 Mbps downstream and 14.36Mbps upstream and at the same time climb 3 places higher in the ranking.
Make the most of your Internet connection
Although the statistics of speed test providers are based only on the data of individual service users and therefore do not offer a complete picture, they certainly show room for improvement in internet speeds in Cyprus. With this in mind, it is especially important to be able to take full advantage of the available bandwidth throughout the house. However, many households fail to do so because their WiFi infrastructure is inadequate: a router that has to power an entire home on its own quickly reaches its limits. The results are disconnection, short breaks during video calls, and poor resolution during streaming.
However, modern network solutions help significantly in solving these problems. For example, the German pioneers in Powerline technology at devolo, can transmit the Internet signal to any electrical outlet via the electrical wiring of the house and at the maximum possible speed. All you need are the devolo Magic WiFi series adapters, which turn any outlet into a high-speed Internet access point. The built-in WiFi mesh functions of the latest technology ensure that the connections are fast and stable.
