SEVERAL MONTHS AGO, STATISTICS ON AVERAGE INTERNET SPEED ACROSS EUROPE WERE PUBLISHED BY OOKLA NET INDEX (SOURCE NO LONGER AVAILABLE). THE MAP SHOWS AVERAGE SPEEDS IN EU COUNTRIES.

Romania is shown as having the fastest internet speed across the European Union, followed by the Netherlands, Sweden, and Lithuania. On the tail end you can find some southern Europe countries, particularly Croatia, Greece, and surprisingly enough, Italy.

The fact is that Romania has developed a strong fibre infrastructure in the last years, which accounts for much of its current results. This infrastructure is one of the results of strong competition among ISPs in Romania, developed after the phenomenal growth of “neighbourhood networks” in the 90s which extended the use of the internet in homes across the country. On the other hand, Italy has an old copper-based network that is being upgraded slowly and under difficult conditions for competing providers that struggle to find their niche against a powerful incumbent. Fibre is still largely absent from home connections.

Still, it is also shocking that some of the most developed European economies, such as Germany or Austria, obtain comparatively poor results. Each country has specific conditions in their telecom markets, and only companies with a deep understanding of each particular situation and a large scope that allows them to use different providers and different connectivity types can successfully deal with all these national variations.
