Ookla Unveils Speedtest Market Report for Canada, Reveals Fastest ISPs in Your City


According to a new report based on data from Ookla’s Speedtest, Rogers offers the fastest fixed-line broadband speeds in Canada and Bell tops the list of fastest wireless download speeds.

The new market report is based on 8.8 million broadband tests and almost 800,000 mobile tests conducted by Canadians using Speedtest. The report shows that Rogers offered the fastest download speeds on average offering 153.48 Mbps, which is more than twice as fast as second-place Shaw’s 71.41 Mbps. Bell offered the fastest upload speeds of any ISP, at 30.58 Mbps.

Overall, the report shows that Canadians are enjoying faster internet and mobile services. Over the past year, fixed broadband speeds shot up 40 percent for download and 33 percent for upload, while mobile download speeds were up by 21 percent, and upload by 18 percent.

Even though Rogers, Bell, and Telus continue to control the internet and mobile markets, new local service providers are definitely providing some strong competition.

    And so have prices gone up. Rogers is increasing the monthly fee for my wireless plan by 18% on 2 September.

    Bell has been increasing the monthly fee for my home Internet by $3-5 every 9-12 months for years.

    Wow Shaw’s upload speed is terrible.

    I’m guessing this is before the new 150mbps proliferated the market?

    Shan’t upload speeds have always been atrocious. Surprised telia mobile is so poor and fido slightly better than Roger’s. Must be some flaws in the testing here

  • LadeeDa

    Right, and Apple or Samsung is the best cell phone on the market depending on who you camp out with. Besides, in BC Tel Savvy uses either Shaw Cable or Telia DSL.

    Keep spreading nonsense or incomplete info, this way you sound like a complete t toll.

    I wonder if its embarrassing for shaw to have slower upload speeds than the wireless providers.
