The US on the other hand, stays in third place even though attack traffic dropped from 8. There is a bright side to the research, akaai Global internet speeds rose at a much higher rate since the last report.

High broadband any speed greater than or equal to 10Mbps adoption rose to 14 percent worldwide quarter over quarter, while average-connection speeds rose to 3. If you’ve been keeping tabs on mobile device traffic numbers, cellular network traffic was about even between Android Webkit and Apple’s Mobile Safari, coming in at just under 38 and 34 percent respectively.

Attack Traffic and 2q Akamai maintains a distributed set of unadvertised agents deployed across the Internet that log connection attempts, which the company classifies as attack traffic.

Based on the data collected by these agents, Akamai is able to identify the top countries from which attack traffic originates, as well as the top ports targeted by these shate.

It is important to note, however, that the originating country as identified by the source IP address may not represent the nation in which an attacker resides. For example, an individual in the United States may be launching attacks from compromised systems anywhere in the world.

Indonesia pushed China out of the top spot this quarter, nearly doubling its first-quarter traffic from 21 percent to 38 percent, while China moved to second at 33 percent down from 34 percent. The United States remained in third even after dropping to 6. Like the first quarter, Indonesia and China again originated more than half of the total observed attack traffic.

In addition to observations on attack traffic, the State of the Internet Report includes insight into distributed denial of service DDoS attacks based on reports from Akamai customers. In the second quarter ofAkamai customers reported attacks, a 54 percent increase over the reported in the first quarter.

Since a single IP address can represent multiple individuals in some cases — such as when users access thd Web through wtate firewall or proxy server — Akamai estimates the total number of unique Web users connecting to its platform during the quarter to be well over one billion. The global number of unique IP addresses seen by the Akamai Intelligent Platform grew by almost 19 million during the quarter.

Among the top 10 countries that connected to Akamai in the second quarter, six demonstrated growth in unique IP w2, ranging from 0. Year-over-year, the number of global unique IP addresses connecting to Akamai grew by 13 percent — an increase of more than 87 million from the second quarter of All of the top 10 countries experienced growth over the year, ranging from 2.

Globally, just more than 75 percent interbet countries had higher unique IP address counts, with triple-digit growth seen in numerous countries, including Angola percent and Sudan percent.

These positive trends bode well for the continued increase and adoption of broadband connectivity around the world. Mobile Connectivity During the second quarter ofaverage connection speeds on surveyed mobile network operators ranged from a high of 9. Data collected by Ericsson shows that the volume of mobile data traffic grew 14 percent during the quarter and nearly doubled year-over-year. Based on data derived from Akamai IO for the second quarter ofmobile devices on cellular networks using the Android Webkit accounted for slightly less than 38 percent of requests while Apple Mobile Safari saw nearly 34 percent of requests.

In measuring mobile devices across all network types, Apple Mobile Safari accounted just more than 54 percent of usage while Android Webkit was responsible for Beijing uses face-detecting smart locks to curb public housing abuses.
