For anyone that works or communicates with others in Asia and the Pacific, below are some average Internet connection comparison charts for reference, sourced by Akamai. Always helpful to have a better understanding of the environment of people you’re connecting with.

From the relatively smaller numbers of Internet users, Sri Lanka and Kazakhstan have gone from bottom of the barrel to top of the hill. Similarly would expect the same in Nepal as shown with the spike in 2008 time frame.
- Sri Lanka
- South Korea
- Hong Kong
You would think with New Zealand being much smaller that they would also have higher average connection speeds but that’s not the case. You could rationalize that while Australia is much larger, it’s still generally concentrated in a few areas, notably the western half and the coastlines, at least versus a similar sized area such as China.
- New Zealand
- Northern Asia, South Korea
- Southern Asia, Singapore
- Pacific, Australia
- Western Asia, Kazakhstan
