Algunos extractos del informe:
Americas Average Peak Connection Speeds“… With an 18% quarter-over-quarter change, growing to an average peak connection speed of 58.6 Mbps in the third quarter, Uruguay cemented its position as the surveyed Americas country with the highest average peak connection speed. As shown in Figure 24, Uruguay now leads the United States by nearly 10 Mbps, and is nearly 15 Mbps ahead of Canada. Uruguay’s 18% quarterly.
increase was also the largest seen among the Americas countries, as the remaining increases ranged from 1.6% in Brazil to 8.4% in Colombia.
Americas Broadband connectivity “… Year-over-year changes were nearly all positive in the third quarter, with Venezuela’s 9.6% yearly decline the sole outlier. There was a broad range of increases seen across the remaining qualifying countries, as four countries grew by less than 10%, with Canada’s 1.3% the smallest. The largest increases were seen in Uruguay, which grew by more than 1,200% year-over-year”
Global Average peak connection speeds “… Looking across all of the qualifying countries/regions, a total of 135 qualifying countries/regions saw average peak connection speeds increase from the third quarter of 2013. Yearly growth ranged from 0.6% in Nicaragua (12.3 Mbps) up to the aforementioned 334% increase in Uruguay..”
Global High Broadband Connectivity “When looking at all of the qualifying countries/regions, the United Arab Emirates was once again the only country to see a year-over-year decline in high broadband adoption, dropping a surprisingly high 35% (to 3.5% adoption). Across the other 62
geographies, yearly increases ranged from 6.3% in Japan to a massive 3,015% in Uruguay (to 7.2% adoption)..”
Global 4K readiness: “… Among the six qualifying countries, the United States and Canada continued to have 4k readiness rates well above those seen in the remaining four countries, as well as being well above the rates seen in the nine countries that did not qualify. Among those nine countries, only Uruguay had a readiness rate above 1.0%; three of the countries are at 0.1% or less..
