UAE leads with fastest fixed broadband speed and connectivity in the region

UAE leads a global speed index as the country with the fastest fixed broadband speed and connectivity in the region, according to the latest data from Ookla, a global leader in internet testing, data and analysis. The speed test global index compares internet speed data from around the world on a monthly basis. Data for the Index comes from the hundreds of millions of tests taken by real people using Speed test every month. The data from Ookla showed network performance of UAE as one of the highest in the world with the country jumping 16 places in the ranking in one month.

The average download speed in a fixed broadband network measured by Ookla at 88.35mbps. Currently, UAE ranks 25th on a global list out of 177 countries and among the top 20 of global advanced economies.

Commenting on this achievement, H.E Hamad Obaid Al Mansoori, Director General of the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority said: “The advancement in connectivity and infrastructure is a result of the leadership’s vision that helped drive the growth of ICT across all sectors and segments of the economy and society. UAE is also ranked number one for Fiber to the Home (FTTH) penetration across the world for a third year in a row. I take this occasion to thank the national telecom operators, Etisalat and Du for their contribution to the UAE leadership and competitiveness. They have recently doubled the speed for businesses and consumers which led to increase in business productivity in the country.   

TRA was established in the UAE according to the Federal Law by Decree No. 3 of 2003. The role of TRA focuses on two fields: regulating the telecommunications sector, and enabling government entities in the field of smart transformation, as well as promoting cyber security in order to preserve the society’s safety and enhance its happiness and wellbeing.

In regulation, TRA role focuses on ensuring excellent telecom services, developing the ICT sector, protecting the stakeholders’ interests, implementing relevant policy and regulatory frameworks, developing human resources and promoting research and development, in order to ensure that the UAE has a leading regional and global position in the ICT sector.

In enablement, TRA is responsible for the mGovernment according to the Law No. 3 of 2011. Since then, TRA has been responsible for digital transformation in the Federal Government through two strategic goals: enhancing smart lifestyle and leadership in smart technological infrastructure in the UAE.
