Japan, Sweden, and Netherlands Lead World in Broadband Network Quality

Date: 10/2/2008 7:09:13 PM

Japan currently boasts the world’s highest-quality broadband infrastructure, followed by Sweden and the Netherlands, according to researchers at Oxford University’s Said Business School.

Researchers used a number of indicators, including upload/download speeds and internet latency, to calculate a “Broadband Quality Score” for each of 41 countries.

Sweden and the Netherlands scored well on the index due to “increasing investments in fiber and cable network upgrades, coupled with competition diversity, and supported by strong government vision and policy,” according to the study.

Latvia, South Korea, Switzerland, Lithuania, Denmark, Germany, and Slovenia rounded out the global top-ten. The United Kingdom scored well in terms of download speeds, but fell short of the top ten list, due to a relative deficiency in upstream bandwidth, which has increased in importance along with the popularity of interactive Web 2.0 applications.
