Public WiFi hotspots are a godsend for business travellers and tourists who want to avoid paying international data charges. Sometimes, however, public WiFi can prove infuriatingly slow (and insecure of course). Which countries worldwide offer the fastest download speeds over public WiFi networks? According to Rotten Wi-Fi , a public WiFi and 3G/4G watchdog, nowhere beats Europefor public WiFi speeds, quite surprising given that South Korea and Hong Kong boast the quickest Internet speeds worldwide.

The company measured and evaluated the quality of public WiFi hotspots in 172 countries, finding that the majority of the fastest public WiFi networks were in European countries. Lithuania boasts the fastest average public WiFi download speeds worldwide at 15.40 Mbps. Croatia comes second with 14.05 Mbps while another small baltic nation, Estonia, rounds off the top three with 13.75.

The first non European nation to make the list is Singapore with an average download speed of 9.49 Mbps over its public WiFi networks. What about the United States? Its hotspots struggle to compete with Europe in speed, only managing 20th position with a download speed of 6.89 Mbps, just behind Canada’s 7.16.
