"At the start of 2017, the average mobile download speed in India was 7.65Mbps. Heading into the end of the year, average mobile download speed is 8.80Mbps as of November. That's a 15 percent increase," Ookla said in a release announcing the results.

"While mobile speeds increased modestly, fixed broadband speeds increased dramatically. Average fixed broadband download speed in January was 12.12Mbps. As of November, it's at 18.82Mbps, a close to 50 percent jump," it added.

As of November, Norway ranks first in the world for mobile Internet speeds with an average download speed of 62.66Mbps. Singapore takes the top spot for fixed broadband with 153.85Mbps average downloads.
