Web world is the essence of this century and it’s only going to grow in the coming years. Almost every house hold in middle and upper class across the globe has internet connectivity at home. Needless to say, offices just can’t function anymore without being connected to the world.

Having said that, it’s imperative for any user to know how fast, reliable and secure internet connectivity is available in their region. Internet Traffic Report is a website which minutely monitors the flow of data around the world. A value ranging between 0 and 100 is assigned depending on the quality of internet connection. The parameters used for generating this value are fastness and reliability.


On many occasions, the internet tends to slow down and as a curious user, for whom internet is a lifeline, you would definitely want to know if it’s a global or a local problem. You can check the Internet Traffic Report to understand the nature of problem.

The website has pictorial illustrations in the form of graphs to share the statistics of Traffic Index, Response Time and Global Packet Loss for the past 24 hours. Response Time in reference to Internet traffic is how long it takes for a chunk of data to travel from point A to point B and back (round trip). The “traffic index” is a score from 0 to 100 where 0 is “slow” and 100 is “fast”. It is determined by comparing the current response of a ping echo to all previous responses from the same router over the past 7 days. The site updates the data after every 5 minutes with the recent statistics.


The continents listed on the website are Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America. The other two continents are however not listed on the website. They do not enough routers in Africa and Antarctica.

All in all, it’s a very useful website for keeping a close watch on your internet traffic.
