Taiwan, Singapore and Jersey top the list of the places with the fastest internet speeds in the world - the UK is at 33rd place and the US at 15th in the 'Global League' rankings.
The average download speed in top spot Taiwan is 85 megabits per second and that speed it would take someone just eight seconds to download a high definition movie.
Researchers from WebsiteToolTester studied data submitted by internet users through online speed tests, excluded any with an obvious fault on the line and collated them to create the global ranking.
The average speed for the Earth has gone from about 9Mbps in 2017 to just over 11Mbps in 2019 - which researchers put down to infrastructure improvements.
They also found that 18 of the top 25 countries with the fastest internet speeds were in Europe - with the fastest coming from the tiny island of Jersey - with speeds of 67Mbps - 100 per cent higher than the UK.
'This is why the country averages will appear lower than you might expect when compared to first-hand experience,' the authors of the report said.
They said the aim of the study was to provide a league of 'relative broadband speeds' not absolute measures of bandwidth - so the flaws actually create a more realistic picture.
