Digital divide: Ireland falls to lowest position yet on global broadband rankings

New figures from Ookla Net index show Ireland has fallen to 56th position in the world for download speeds, its worst showing yet, and a clear indication as any that as the nations of the world accelerate towards faster speeds Ireland is falling behind.

According to the Index, Ireland is 56th in the world for download speeds and 24th out of 27 in the EU (51st/24th Q1 2012).

Ireland is 80th in the world for upload speeds and 23rd out of 27 in the EU (74th/24th Q1 2012). Ireland is 25th in the world for quality and 12th of 22 in the EU (23rd/12th Q1 2012). Ireland is 43rd in the world in terms of cost per Mbps and 25th out of 27 in the EU (43rd/26th Q1 2012).
