GCI report shows Myanmar has lowest bandwidth in the region
A report by Huawei has revealed that Myanmar has the lowest bandwidth and slowest Internet in the region. The Chinese telecom giant’s Global Connectivity Index 2017 ranks countries according to bandwidth and Internet infrastructure.
Myanmar only has two undersea fibre-optic cables and two cross-border cables for its Internet traffic. By contrast regional leader Singapore has a total of 21 international fibre links, 15 of which are undersea and six cross-border. Malaysia has 17 links – 13 undersea and four cross-border; Thailand has 10 undersea and four cross-border; the Philippines has nine undersea and six cross-border; and Vietnam has five undersea and two cross-border cables. Cambodia lags behind with three undersea Internet fibre cables and one cross-border cable.
In South Asia, Bangladesh has two undersea and two cross-border, while Sri Lanka has seven undersea and four cross-border cables.
Myanmar frequently faces slow Internet speeds, with an average of just 3.14 kilobits per second (Kbps).
That is low compared with 3.25 Kbps in Laos, 7 Kbps in Indonesia, 9.73 in the Philippines, 13.07 in Cambodia, 22.27 in Vietnam, 46.01 in Thailand, 123.08 in Malaysia and 3,066.6 in Singapore.
Myanmar had 101 gigabits per second of international bandwidth from 2011 to 2015 compared to 38.2 Gbps in Cambodia, 126.5 in Sri Lanka, 1,138.3 in Vietnam, 1,084.6 in Thailand, 2,212.2 in Malaysia, 12,763.8 in Singapore, 3,014.3 in India, 19,794.1 in China and 15,741.4 in Japan.
