A study conducted by Pando Networks reveals the speed and reliability of Internet connections around the world with some surprising findings.

Based on 27 million downloads by 20 million computers in 224 countries from January through June 2011 , the study provides a comprehensive look at worldwide data accessibility, singling out the best and the worst places to link up with the web.

The average worldwide download speed is 580KBps.

While South Korea leading the list with a blazingly fast average speed of 2,202KBps may not come as much of a surprise, the eastern European nations of Romania (1,909KBps) and Bulgaria (1,611KBps) unexpectedly claimed the second- and third-highest speeds.

In fact, Eastern European nations dominated the top of the list with Lithuania in fourth at 1,462KBps, Latvia in fifth at 1,377KBps and Ukraine in eighth at 1,190KBps.

The completion rate for measured downloads closely correlates with average speed, South Korea again taking top prize with a 94 per cent completion rate and most of the other speedy countries not far behind.

The other end of the list is fairly unsurprising; developing nations in Africa and Asia trail far behind the speeds of those with more mature economies.

The Congo has the absolute slowest average speed at 13KBps, followed closely by the Central African Republic at 14KBps and Comoros at 23KBps.

Other notable countries studied include the United States at 616KBps, Germany at 647KBps, Australia at 348KBps and China at 245KBps.

Average download speeds also vary based by ISP, and choosing the correct one could be the difference between speedy downloads and frustrating wait times.

In the United States, Verizon Internet Services provides the fastest service, averaging 1,056KBps due to their widespread FIOS network.

In Great Britain, Virgin Media is the fastest choice with average speeds of 612KBps, while Dacom Corporation takes the top spot in speedy South Korea with an average of 5,151KBps.
