Akamai’s globally distributed Intelligent Platform allows us to gather massive amounts of data on many metrics, including connection speeds, attack traffic, network connectivity/availability issues, and IPv6 adoption progress, as well as traffic patterns across the leading Web properties and digital media providers. Each quarter, Akamai publishes the State of the Internet Report.

This quarter’s report includes data gathered from across the Akamai Intelligent Platform™ during the fourth quarter of 2015, covering Internet connection speeds and broadband adoption metrics as well as trends seen in this data over time. In addition, the report includes insight into the state of IPv4 exhaustion and IPv6 adoption, Internet disruptions that occurred during the quarter, mobile browser usage trends, and observations from Akamai partner Ericsson regarding data and voice traffic growth on mobile networks.

Beginning with the First Quarter, 2015 State of the Internet Report, security-related content that was previously included in the State of the Internet Report, including data on attack traffic seen across the Akamai platform and insights into high-profile security vulnerabilities and attacks, is now published in a separate State of the Internet / Security Report. The quarterly security report provides timely information about the origins, tactics, types, and targets of cyberattacks, including quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year attack traffic trends as well as case studies highlighting emerging cybersecurity issues. The State of the Internet / Security Report can be found at http://www.stateoftheinternet.com/security-report.
