St Lucia ranks 122 worldwide in broadband speeds

While the slowest internet suppliers were mostly in Africa. But what can you do if you're suffering from buffering?

This is according to the latest consumer research from Which?

Which? found customers only received on average 58 per cent of their expected broadband speeds.

What's more, those who are paying for the fastest speeds are most likely to find their expectations are not being met.

In third place, Taiwan's average speed was 34.4Mbps, which would allow a 7.5GB download in 29 minutes and 46 seconds. The gap increases as the expected speeds get faster.

The Global Index compiles data from the billions of tests consumers run on the service, and shows both mobile and fixed broadband speeds from around the world. "If they aren't they should contact their provider so that any issues with their service can be resolved".

Speedtest has always been the go-to for measuring internet speed, and now it's launched the Speedtest Global Index, a monthly global ranking that allows you to see how your country stacks up when it comes to internet speed.

According to Cable.co.uk, the average speeds enjoyed in the United Kingdom are 16.51Mbps, behind 19 other countries in Europe alone.

South Korea, which is usually among the top-ranked nations in terms of average broadband speed, placed 16th with a mean download speed of 22.9Mbps.

"These results offer us a fresh perspective on where we sit in the broadband world", Cable.co.uk consumer telecoms analyst Dan Howdle said. Those expecting 10Mbps or lower were able to exceed their expected speed by 38 per cent.

Firstly, you need to establish exactly what speeds you are receiving.
