Based on a new survey, Hungary has the 16th fastest Internet connection in fixed broadband while the 36th in the mobile category. Interestingly, the speed of the Internet is faster in Romania than in Hungary.
According to hvg.hu, Speedtest measured the Internet speed in May in Hungary, as well. They did their analysis in two categories: fixed broadband and mobile Internet connection.
Based on the results, Hungary has the 16th fastest Internet connection in fixed broadband while the 36th in the mobile category. The global average of download and upload in the mobile category is 33.71 and 10.89 Mbps, while the latency is 41 ms. Meanwhile, South Korea has the fastest download connection in the mobile category with 100.22 Mbps. Interestingly, the United Arab Emirates and China follow the Far-East country with 99.67 and 97.10 Mbps. The last position (138) belongs to Afghanistan in the mobile phone list, where the average download speed is only 5.71 Mbps.
In Hungary, this speed is 42.77 Mbps.

In the fixed broadband sector, Singapore became the winner with 205.13 Mbps average speed. Hong Kong and Thailand follow them with 183.24 and 170.14 Mbps. Interestingly, Romania is in fourth place in this respect with 159.31 Mbps while, in Hungary, this number is 131.15, which was only enough for the 16th position.
We reported HERE that based on an analysis published in April made by Datareportal.com, Hungary was among the top 10 countries with the fastest internet connection in the world in 2019. Panda Security also emphasised that last year, the average bandwidth of domestic wired Internet connection reached 128.07 Mbps,
ranking Hungary the 10th in the global leader board.
Based on the analysis, the development is almost 20% compared to last year.
Interestingly, the historical data traffic record was broken on March 21 at Budapest Internet Exchange (BIX), one of the largest independent Hungarian data exchange centres. On that day, a peak of 252.7 Gbps data traffic was registered, while the previous record was 245.9 Gbps.
The Datareportal survey also pointed out that Internet use is about to reach another milestone this year. At the end of last year, 4.54 billion people had Internet access, representing 59% of the world’s population. Thus, the world’s population could cross the 60% mark already in the first half of the year, meaning that nearly two-thirds of the people will have an internet connection.
