Korea has the fastest average Internet connection in the world, a survey says. U.S. market researcher Statista on Friday said Korea has an average Internet connection speed of 14.2 Mbps.
That means it takes about 2 minutes 26 seconds to download a two-hour 2GB movie file.
Overall, Asia led the world with Japan ranking second (11.7 Mbps) and Hong Kong third (10.9 Mbps). Next came European countries like Switzerland, the Netherlands and Latvia.
The U.S. ranked ninth with 8.6 Mbps.
The worldwide average Internet speed is 3.1 Mbps, exceeding the 3 Mbps mark for the first time, according to Statista.
