CIRA's new study on Canadian Internet Speed Across the Country

The CIRA's new study ( Canadian Internet Registration Authority) finds that Canadians internet speeds across the country vary widely.




Based on 126,000 Canadian internet users, who across the country participate by submitting their internet performance tests to the telecommunications company, CIRA summarizes the average download speed is 18.64 Mbps, and 7.26 Mbps upon upload speed.


According to cities, Toronto ranks top with average download speed of 22.33 Mbps, while western cities, including Vancouver, Edmonton and Winnipeg come out in the bottom of the list, with Regina dead last among the twenty-five largest cities.


Whatever the reasons for all the different speeds and claims by service providers, CIRA says that access to fast, reliable and affordable Internet service is “critical” to the country’s economy and also an important social goal. Without good quality Internet connections, applications like voice over IP (VOIP), streaming video and media downloads are compromised.


So if you have a little download troubles, please keep calm and do not piss off your internet service provider. If not, and you really want to kick your ISP,then CIK should be your first choice.
