India might be an IT powerhouse but Indians are getting a raw deal when it comes to sheer Internet speeds. According to a report by Akamai, India’s average Internet speed at 1.7 Megabits per second (Mbps) is the slowest in Asia. This is also way below the global average of 3.9 Mbps. India came in last among the 14 countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The report also says that the peak connection speed actually declined in the first quarter of 2014.
