In a new report from the American giant that owns the Speedtest software, it is reported that during the second quarter (Q2), Chile is positioned as the country with the best average download speed during Q2 in fixed internet networks, displacing Singapore to the second position. The average download speed achieved was 214 Mbps.
Nevertheless, From a mobile point of view, Chile is ranked 84th. moving back two places, with a average speed of 22.01 Mbps
From the mobile point of view, there is a downward trend in internet download speed, as well as latency. While the upload speed shows an almost constant linear trend of growth, although a fairly flat curve. Namely, It is not yet observed that the deployment of 5G decisively improves the quality of the connection. However, the clear jump in speed can be seen 6 months ago.
From the point of view of fixed internet, clearly the situation is different, it is observed that the deployment of fiber optics at the national level has proven to be a constant in all operators, with excellent numbersreducing latency and increasing internet download and upload speeds.
At the local level, the Q2 report does not present the subdivision of speed by operator, it only shows data on latency and consistency in the connection by company.
In turn, the sample considers the results that present a minimum internet download and upload speed between 5 and 1 Mbps, respectively.
From the point of view of Chilean cities, Viña del Mar presents the best mobile internet download and upload speed with 22.67 and 12.78 Mbps respectively. Regarding latency, it also ranks first with 22ms
What do you think of the situation in Chile, being first in fixed Internet and 84th place in mobile Internet?
