Net surfers in Norway have the second fastest speeds in the world, according to a new report.
Norway’s average connection speed of 20.1 megabits per second (mbps) is second only to South Korea’s 27 mbps average, a new report from internet service provider Akamai said this week.
Norway’s average internet speeds increased by 55 percent over the previous year, enough to catapult the nation past Sweden to claim the fastest internet in Europe.
Sweden’s average speed was 18.8 mbps, good enough for fourth place overall. Hong Kong placed third with speeds of 19.5 mbps.
Akamai's’s president in the Nordics explained that other nations have followed Sweden’s example by investing in fast broadband.
