Third annual broadband study shows global broadband quality improves by 24% in one year


  • Third annual study from Saïd Business School, Oxford University, looks at broadband quality in 72 countries and 239 cities
  • 14 countries (1 in 5) already prepared for the Internet „applications of tomorrow“, compared to only 1 country in 2008
  • 38 countries, 53% of the total, have conquered the digital quality divide, with less evident differences between the broadband quality inside and outside their main cities, an improvement of 58% in just one year
  • Study reaffirms positive link between broadband leadership and innovation economies
  • Many emerging economies are ‚leapfrogging‘ by focusing on bringing the best broadband to their cities, acknowledging their impact on the economy
  • 38 cities already have the broadband quality required for the applications of tomorrow, ready to support smart and connected communities
  • Mobile broadband quality has improved significantly, with 10% of mobile broadband users already enjoying similar quality experiences compared to those with fixed-line broadband
  • Broadband consumption patterns are diverging, from a basic household requiring over 2 Mbps and consuming about 20 GB per month, to a smart and connected home commanding over 20 Mbps and a consumption of 500 GB per month
