Internet speed varies greatly depending on country, and in the Arab world, it sometimes seems unreliable.
A new study from English cable company Cable UK has compiled a ranking of worldwide Internet speed, and confirmed what we knew was true: the Internet in the Middle East is among the worst in the world. Not every country in the region struggles with hours-long download times, though, and the list shows where to head if Internet speed is a top priority for you.
Cable ranked the countries based on how long it takes to download a 7.5GB HD movie, and Singapore topped the list with a download speed of 18 minutes and 34 seconds.
Following Singapore is Sweden (25:30), Taiwan (29:46), and Denmark (30:32).
The fastest Internet in the Arab world is in Morocco, which ranks 79th globally with a speed of 3:53:40.
Here are the countries that follow:
United Arab Emirates:81 globally, 4:05:39
Qatar: 84 globally, 4:23:14
Tunisia: 88 globally, 4:52:23
Bahrain: 96 globally, 5:27:18.
