  1. Henk- look at this article from us Indians’ perspective. In a place where 2-4 Mbps still run businesses, 50 Mbps is Utopia! 😛

    • guys, in Lithuania me and my friends have 100mb/s up/down and it cost 10Euro and you can 600mb/s for 20Euro and lowest option is 50mb/s and it cost 5euro, and that’s basic stuff you can get, probably you can get a lot higher if you know someone.

  2. I was pretty suprised that Lithuania was not mentioned in this list. In 2016 it had fastest public wifi Also already in 2011 it had fastest internet in the world and was competing only with South Korea. It would be nice to know whether Lithuania was not mentioned only by mistake or everything is changing so so fast 🙂
