When it comes to matters of speed, Kenya knows how to be on top.
Apart from our runners, it seems our internet is fast too……really fast. According to Akamai’s State of the Internet report, Kenya’s internet speed has been ranked as the fastest in Africa and Middle East. Akamai is the world’s leading content delivery network (CDN) services provider for media and software delivery, and cloud security solutions.
According to the report. Kenya has a stunning average internet speed of 15mbps (megabytes per second) followed by Israel at 14.4mbps, South Africa at 6.6 mbps, Morroco at 5.2 mbps and Nigeria at 4.1 mbps. Seems like we are ahead of other African countries by far.
Globally, Kenya ranked 23rd with South Korea topping the list with the fastest connectivity at 26.1 mbps.
Further details on the report stated:
“Kenya overtook third-quarter leader Israel to gain the top spot for average connection speeds among the surveyed Middle East and Africa countries in the fourth quarter.As noted previously, Kenya did not qualify for inclusion one year ago.It has clearly seen tremendous growth in high-speed connectivity in the past year.”
If your internet is currently slow, you are probably living in another country. Maybe Rongai.
