According to SurfShark’s fifth annual Digital Quality of Life Index assessment, India possesses great internet stability, with mobile internet speeds increasing by an astounding 297 per cent as a result of extensive 5G implementation, while fixed broadband speeds have increased by a paltry 16 per cent. The study finds that fixed internet speeds average 76 Mbps, while mobile internet speeds average 74 Mbps. Singapore and Saudi Arabia presently hold the record for fastest fixed and mobile internet speeds, with average speeds of 300 Mbps and 310 Mbps, respectively.

India ranks 52nd in terms of digital quality of life and has seen a significant improvement in mobile data speeds. The report ranks 121 nations each year based on five criteria: internet quality, internet affordability, e-infrastructure, e-government, and e-security. This is seven places up compared to last year when the country held the 59th position. This is due to the country’s surge in internet quality, which now ranks 16th among 121 countries, making it 36 per cent higher than the global average.

However, India is placed in the 91st position in terms of e-infrastructure. When it comes to other factors like internet affordability, e-government, and e-security, it secures the 28th, 25th and 66th positions, respectively.
