In 2021, the European Commission set a 2030 target of achieving gigabit connectivity in all EU households and 5G coverage for all populated areas. Considerable progress has already been made in the rollout of fixed very high capacity network (VHCN) connections across the EU. `
In 2021, 70% of EU households enjoyed high-speed internet coverage, up from only 16% in 2013.
VHCN connectivity also improved in low settled areas. Between 2013 and 2021, the share of households in low settled areas with fixed VCHN connection increased from 4% to 37% across the EU. Despite this progress, access levels differ significantly across EU Member States and also within many Member States with regard to population density.
In 2021, Malta recorded high-speed internet coverage for all households (100%), followed by Luxembourg (96%), Denmark (95%) and Spain (94%). Romania ranks 9th among the EU states in terms of coverage of the country’s territory (almost 87%) with high-speed internet.
In contrast, fixed high-speed internet connections were the least widespread in Greece (20%), Cyprus (41%) and Italy (44%).
In low-settled areas, the most widespread coverage was reported in Malta (100%), followed by Luxembourg, Denmark and the Netherlands (all 79%). Meanwhile, the least widespread coverage in low-settled areas was reported in Greece (0%), followed by Czechia (7%) and Finland (12%).
The Speedtest Global Index data, the global study on internet speed carried out by the Ookla company, related to the month of January 2021, showed that Romania has the fastest fixed internet in the European Union and the 4th in the world, the same as in the previous month.
Thus, the list of countries where users enjoy the fastest fixed internet is led by Singapore, followed by Hong Kong and Thailand. The next places are Romania, Denmark, France, Monaco, Switzerland, Spain and Hungary.
The average download speed in fixed broadband internet networks in Romania was 198.01 Mbps in January, and the upload speed was 146.53 Mbps. Latency (how long it takes for a packet to get from one point to another) was calculated at 12 milliseconds, and jitter (the rate of change of delay in a network) at 13 milliseconds.
In terms of mobile internet, Romania ranks 38th worldwide, up three positions compared to the previous month. The average download speed in mobile networks in Romania was, in January 2021, 47.69 Mbps, and the upload speed 14.14 Mbps. Latency was calculated at 31 milliseconds and jitter at 22 milliseconds.
In the global top profile, Qatar was dethroned from the first place, even reaching the third position, after the United Arab Emirates and South Korea. China, Saudi Arabia, Norway, Kuwait, Australia, the Netherlands and Canada round out the top 10 countries.
