Browsing Bliss: Which countries have the best internet in Europe 


Iceland has the fastest and best internet in Europe, study shows 

Spain ranks second for internet dominance in Europe 

Romania has the third-best internet in Europe  

New research reveals that Iceland has the best Internet in Europe.  

Research by VPS Server [1] analysed mean internet speeds, %
households with access to the internet, the cost for 1gb of mobile data
and the average price for broadband internet. These metrics give a fair
comparison as it judges value as well as internet quality.  

1 – Iceland 

Iceland has a well-developed internet infrastructure and is known for
its high internet penetration rate, 98% of households have access to the
internet. The country has made significant investments in broadband
connectivity, and most Icelanders have access to high-speed internet,
which has mean speeds of 216 Mbps. Average internet prices are quite
high at £60; however, the quality of the internet and infrastructure
may justify this.  

2 – Spain  

Spain has a robust internet infrastructure, with widespread access to
high-speed broadband connections, 96% of households have access to the
internet with mean speeds of 115 Mbps. Spain is known for its vibrant
online community and has a thriving e-commerce sector. Internet here is
much cheaper, with 1gb of mobile data averaging 0.47p and broadband
costing £24.  

3 – Romania

Romania has made significant progress in developing its internet
infrastructure. Still, only 89% of households have internet access, but
those with mean speeds of 112 Mbps and are only paying around £5.90 for
broadband and 0.35p per 1gb of mobile data.  

4 – France 

France has extensive coverage of high-speed broadband connections
throughout the country. 92% of households have internet access, and the
mean speeds reach around 120 Mbps. Although more expensive than in
Romania, prices are still reasonable, with broadband costing an average
of £27. However, mobile data is even cheaper, with 1gb costing around
0.18p on average. 

5 – Luxembourg  

Luxembourg has excellent internet, with 97% of households having access
to the internet and those that do have mean speeds of 131 Mbps. The
country has a favourable regulatory environment for digital businesses;
thus, it is in the country’s interest to keep its Internet
infrastructure strong and stable. However, it has the eighth highest
average internet price of £44.21.

6 – Netherlands 

The Netherlands has one of the highest internet penetration rates
globally, with most of the population being active internet users (98%).
Mean speeds in the Netherlands are 113 Mbps, much above the European
average of 71 Mbps. Prices for broadband average at £37, which is just
above the average in Europe (£26.19); however, when you’re getting
high-quality internet, that cost can often be justified.  

7 – Liechtenstein  

Liechtenstein has a relatively small population, but it has developed
its internet to provide mean speeds that are some of the best in Europe,
with 166 Mbps. The internet spreads to 95% of households and costs, on
average, £47, which is quite a bit above the average of the rest of the
continent. Mobile data is also much more expensive at £3 per 1gb of

8 – United Kingdom  

The internet is widely used in the UK for communication, social
networking, e-commerce, and entertainment. The country has a robust
digital economy and has been at the forefront of technological
advancements. However, compared to much of the EU, the UK has very
average mean speeds of 72 Mbps. 97% of UK households have access to the
internet, and the average cost is £26, which aligns with the EU average

9 – Malta  

Malta has made significant strides in improving its internet
infrastructure in recent years and now boasts mean speeds of 107 Mbps
costing around £21 for broadband. However, mobile data is still
expensive costing £2.32 per 1gb. Malta has been proactive in embracing
digital technologies and has implemented initiatives to support the
growth of the digital economy, economic development, and an
interconnected society.

10 – Poland 

Much like other Eastern Europe countries, Poland has very good Internet
prices, with average broadband costing £13 and 1gb of mobile data
costing 0.32p. Although the price may reflect the quality, the mean
speeds in Poland are around 55 Mbps, which is slightly lower than the
average speeds in Europe.   

A spokesperson from VPS Server  [1]commented: “The internet
infrastructure in Europe has woven a digital tapestry, connected nations
and empowering individuals, fostering innovation, and transcending
borders. It is the backbone of a new era, where knowledge flows freely,
opportunities are wide, and the world is just a click away. 

“The continuous investment and maintenance of internet infrastructure in
Europe symbolises a commitment to progress and connectivity. By
nurturing and expanding this, Europe paves the way for innovation,
economic growth and an interconnected society.”
