India Maintains Global Ranking in Mobile Speeds

In July 2021, India’s mobile download speed registered was 17.77 Mbps which is a tad bit lesser than the 17.84 Mbps recorded in June 2021.
Same as in June 2021, UAE and Monaco have retained their position as the countries offering the maximum mobile broadband and fixed broadband download speeds. UAE delivered a mobile downloading speed of 190.03 Mbps in July 2021, and Monaco delivered a fixed broadband download speed of 256.70 Mbps.
