New Delhi, Sep 18 (IANS) India has recorded the highest growth trajectory in the overall fixed broadband download speeds to achieve the mean speed of 62.45 Mbps in August, the highest ever the country has achieved, according to Ookla's Speedtest Global Index.

With this, India has maintained its global ranking at 68th spot in fixed broadband speeds in the month of August.

India's overall performance in mobile download speeds also registered a slight increase from 17.77 Mbps in July to 17.96 Mbps in August. However, the country still dropped four spots in the global ranking for mobile speeds, from 122 to 126, owing to the better performance shown by countries like Uzbekistan, Colombia, Belarus and Cote d'Ivoire.

Cuba and Liberia, along with the Marshall Islands, registered the highest growth in mobile download speed and fixed broadband speed, respectively, in August.
