Kenya’s July 2017 Mobile & Fixed Broadband Speeds In The Speedtest Global Index
Last week the Speedtest Global Index, a monthly ranking of global mobile and fixed broadband speeds was launched. This is part of Ookla’s mission is to make the internet faster by providing data and insights on real-world internet speeds. As part of that mission, Ookla is making Speedtest data available, for free, in an interactive format.
The Speedtest Global index is based on billions of consumer-initiated tests taken all over the world using Speedtest, displaying the latest information on which countries have the fastest mobile and fixed broadband and which have the slowest. Naturally, I could not resist the opportunity to to see how Kenya is faring in this respect as below:
