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

This quarter’s report includes data gathered from across the Akamai Intelligent Platform™ during the first quarter of 2016, covering Internet connection speeds and broadband adoption metrics across both fixed and mobile networks 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 events and 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.

Data on attack traffic seen across the Akamai platform and insights into high-profile security vulnerabilities and attacks are 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 https://www.akamai.com/stateoftheinternet-security.
