Referencing the Speedtest Global Index, Doug Suttles, Co-Founder and General Manager at Ookla said “An ever-evolving focus on sophisticated network infrastructure will always be important for fixing network quality in India. India is one of the geographically largest and most populated country in the world, meaning a well laid out network that is able to handle high volumes of usage is a key in supporting the internet needs of the Indian market. Despite these challenges in India (high population, large geography, high density), further advancements in both 4G and 5G network technology will continue to improve network efficiency.”
The Speedtest Global Index comes from the hundreds of millions of tests taken by real people using Speedtest every month. The company claims they have 40 million active users in India conducting over 800,000 tests a day.
