Average Connection Speeds on Mobile Networks Fastest in Greece, Says Akamai

In the fourth quarter of 2010, a mobile provider in Greece (GR-1) had the highest average connection speed, at just over 4.5 Mbps, according to Akamai’s latest State of the Internet Report. “The mobile providers in Slovakia and Russia that had previously been reported as having the highest average connection speeds were removed from consideration in the fourth quarter, as further research determined that their autonomous systems carried a mix of traffic from fixed and mobile connections.”

Also of the 100 fastest cities in the world, according to the report, cities in Asia dominate the list, which includes 60 cities in Japan and 16 cities in South Korea. Constanta, Romania remained the fastest city in Europe (#56 out of 100) while only 8 U.S. cities made the list, with Riverside, CA ranking as the fastest U.S. city (#77 out of 100).
