The majority of Indians are still riding the slow, shuttle train as far as the Internet is concerned.
Average Internet connection speed is one of the lowest for a fast-growing, high-profile nation like India, if you go by the numbers for Q1, 2011 from a recent study by Akamai.
The study shows that average Internet speed in India is a mere 0.8 Mbps compared to 14.4Mbps in South Korea, 5.3Mbps in USA, 1Mbps in China and 4.6Mbps in the UK.
Worse, 35% of Indians connect to the Internet at speeds less than 256Kbps.
Just wondering, will YouTube load at 256Kbps?
Bet you can complete jerking off or even make a baby and the page still wouldn’t have loaded. 🙁
By the way, India is among the Top-10 countries for origin of cyber-attacks. No surprise, eh?
Say, if Internet connection speeds are so slow in India how then do these Chutias illegally download all the Bollywood, Kollywood and Hollywood films.
Maybe, they start the download Wednesday morning and watch the film on Friday evening.
And how do y’all watch those Choli-ke-Peeche Kya Hai films? 😉
Presumably, Internet connection speeds are quite fast in offices and that’s why we see a lot of SI members logging on from their PCs at work.
