According to data from network testing firm Ookla, mobile download speeds in India increased slightly, from 17.77 Mbps in July 2021 to 17.96 Mbps August 2021. However, the country slipped down four spots in the global ranking for mobile speeds, from 122 to 126, owing to the better performance of countries like Uzbekistan, Colombia, Belarus and Cote D’Ivoire.

On the other hand, India continues its growth trajectory in the overall fixed broadband download speeds and recorded the highest ever average speed of 62.5 Mbps in August 2021. With this, India has maintained its global ranking on 68th spot in the fixed broadbands speeds segment in August 2021.
