Due to the Covid-19 virus, most of us have been forced to work remotely from homes, away from our office. Such shift certainly highlights the need for even faster and reliable Internet connection. It is safe to say that countries with faster Internet connection will see amazing growth in their economy. In other words, high speed Internet drives economic growth. So countries which could not upgrade and fasten their Internet speed will risk being left behind in this new era of economic reliance.
How did your country rank in this test conducted by Speedtest? I was curious about my country as well and hence I checked and is (still) kind of disappointed to know that our Internet speed is relatively slow compared to so many other countries. Malaysia ranked 38th in fixed broadband Internet connection speed test. The worse comes to worst when Malaysia only ranked at the 98th spot in mobile Internet connection speed test. Given the price that we are paying, it is a shame to know that my country's Internet speed is slow and expensive. I hope Unifi and other ISPs in my country will buck up.
