In the previous blog post, we talked about the top five countries with the best Internet services. Today, let’s look at the worst. Almost everyone widely uses the Internet for almost everything. From shopping to communicating, entertainment, business, etc. So we want the Internet to be fast and reliable. But sadly, there are some countries that provide worst Internet services. Here are the top five countries with the worst Internet services.

India

India has 27 percent Internet connection below the speed of 256 kbps. This is the fifth highest percentage of slow internet connections. India has world’s third largest Internet users; over 121 million. But internet penetration in the country is too low. Only 8.4 percent of the population use the Internet. Only 1 percent of the population can actually use the broadband Internet.

Iran

Iran is another Asian country that has the worst Internet services. Iran has 30 percent Internet connection below the speed of 256 kbps. The Internet connection of the residents is restricted by the government. The residents can only access 128 kbps and high-speed internet is available only to commercial firms at a high cost.

Nigeria

Nigeria is a country where most of the Internet users access the Internet through a satellite connection. The broadband penetration in the country is too low. Its average Internet speed is 31 percent below 256 kbps.

Timor-Leste

Timor-Leste is a newly declared country when it separated from Indonesia. This country has only a 1 percent penetration rate and is the second-least connected country in the world. Only the elite ones can use the internet as well as the government.

Africa

Africa tops this list. Specifically, Eritrea, which is located in the Horn of Africa, has the worst Internet service. Only 0.91 percent of residents have access to the Internet. This is because the citizens of this country are isolated from the international community.

These are the five countries that have the worst Internet services. The Internet in these countries is either almost unavailable, slow and expensive. Only few can totally access the internet. So the next time you feel like complaining about your Internet connection, know that you are a tad bit luckier than people in these countries.
