Three of those countries have been listed as developing countries by the minister for foreign affairs.

Conversely, Australia’s mobile data network ranked much better and its average of 56.70 is the sixth fastest in the world

Top 10 countries for broadband speed

 Singapore 197.04 

 Hong Kong 169.40

 Iceland 159.30

 Monaco 152.02

Romania 129.82

 South Korea 129.20

 Hungary 116.09

United States 111.65

Sweden 111.48

Switzerland 108.85

The rankings come after the Coalition government-introduced ‘multi-technology’ network was criticised by the opposition.

Federal Shadow Communications Minister Michelle Rowland said taxpayers and consumers had been negatively affected by a ‘slower, costlier and less reliable’ NBN.

The NBN relies on mostly copper cable or hybrid fibre lines, the network’s half-year figures revealed, with less than a quarter being high quality fibre-to-premises connections.

A spokesman for the network said speeds had increased from 26 Mbps nationally since last year – a jump of 7 Mpbs.

But that improvement still leaves Australia lagging far behind neighbours New Zealand – whose average of 85.56 Mbps leaves them sitting 24th globally.
