Ookla Co-founder and General Manager Doug Suttles said in a statement: “Networks are extremely complex entities whose performance is impacted by everything from the quality of physical infrastructure to the geographical regions they are placed.”

“India has unique challenges due to both the country’s large geographic size and population. The number of people using a network at a given time is one of the biggest factors for network congestion and slow down. Overall, we believe they are doing an admirable job given the complexities of the market,” he added.

Ookla’s Speedtest Global Index compares internet speed data monthly from around the world. Data for the Index comes from the hundreds of millions of tests taken by real people using Speedtest every month. The company has 40 million active users in India conducting over 800,000 tests a day.
