United Kingdom drops in worldwide broadband speed rankings

According to the latest global speed rankings, we've dropped four places in the past year. Compared to many other countries both in and out of Europe the United Kingdom has simply come too late to a full fibre (FTTP) solution.
An analysis of more than 160m broadband speed tests conducted across 200 countries revealed Singapore was once again the world's fastest country, followed by Sweden, Denmark and Norway, while Yemen came last.
Topping this year's best broadband is Singapore with average speeds of 60.39Mbps.
Overall, 136 countries failed to achieve average speeds above 10Mbps, a speed deemed by telecoms watchdog Ofcom to be the minimum required to cope with the needs of a typical family or small business.
The analysis also found that the UK's average speed had risen from 16.51Mbps in 2017 to 18.57Mbps this year. That's a year-on-year increase of 23 per cent, for all the data nerds reading this.
By contrast, 25 of the 50 slowest-performing countries are located in Africa, 12 in the Arab States with ten in Asia & Pacific, and three in South/Latin America.
In particular, broadband speeds in the United Kingdom now trail Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Estonia, Lithuania, the Czech Republic and Slovenia - among others - in Europe, and has even been leapfrogged by Madagascar.
Howdle said the UK's relatively poor performance was due to the fact that the country "has simply come too late to a full fibre - FTTP - solution" and added that "the United Kingdom is likely to fall further behind" ahead of plans to roll out fibre coming to fruition.
While the speeds in the United Kingdom were not the best, there were other measurements - such as availability and speed - where the United Kingdom would fare better, said Matthew Howett, principal analyst at research company Assembly. "Despite plans to roll out FTTP [fibre to the premises] to United Kingdom homes across the next decade or so, the United Kingdom is likely to fall further behind while we wait". "The fastest country in this survey, Singapore, is about the size of London and obviously doesn't have the same challenges with remote and rural areas that we have in Britain", he said. Meanwhile Macao dropped behind, leaving the United Kingdom four spots down since previous year.
New research from cable.co.uk has revealed the latest Speed League for broadband with the United Kingdom outperformed by countries including Spain, Romania and Switzerland.
