WHEN you live in a country where the internet connection is as slow as traffic during rush hour, we don’t blame you if you feel like migrating to a place where you can get reliable speeds — especially when your productivity depends on it.

Looking at the latest global index of Ookla, the company behind the web service, makes us want to do just that.
