Google M-Lab Shows Broadband Speeds Across The World

Google M-Lab Shows Broadband Speeds Across The World


Nearly 2000 people have taken part in the Lifehacker Speed Wave, which currently claims an average download speed for our readers of 29.6Mb/s. The median speed of around 9Mb/s is probably closer to the mark but still high, based on newly-updated visualisation tools from Google which let you examine broadband performance across the world.

Google’s M-Lab data suggests that the average download speed in Australia is 3.83Mb/s. Diving into the data shows just how much performance varies across the globe; it’s an interesting way to kill some time/procrastinate/curse your broadband provider.
