How does your internet connection speed shape up in comparison to people around the world? You can now find out, courtesy of this excellent interactive map.

The map plots average connection speed in MB per second (mbps) by country.

Which country has the fastest internet connection speed?

You might be surprised to learn that the fastest average internet connection is to be found on the Norwegian islands of Svalbard and Jan Mayer, where the average connection speed is 36.50mbps.

But given that the islands only have one unique IP address between them, they have an unfair advantage. The Vatican City is in third place for similar reasons.

Taking those anomalies out of the equation and looking only at states with more than 25,000 unique IP addresses or more, it is South Korea who can claim the fastest average internet connection speed. And there is great news for customers, businesses and those who have web hosting in Ireland: you're benefitting from the world's second fastest internet speeds. Here's the full top 10:

  1. South Korea
  2. Ireland
  3. Hong Kong
  4. Sweden
  5. Netherlands
  6. Japan
  7. Switzerland
  8. Norway
  9. Latvia
  10. Finland

Of course, you can take control over your internet speeds by opting for a dedicated internet connection.
