Steam recently added a new section to its statistics page – the Steam Global Traffic Map – and we have been having some fun looking over the information.
How it works: The map shows which countries have the fastest broadband connections and download the most games, based on Steam-using citizens. The data is refreshed to show Steam’s most recent seven days of activity.
This gives us an insight into how countries from far, far away play their games online, and a point against which we can compare ourselves.
With this in mind, we put together two tables: one ranking total Steam traffic, and one ranking Steam-users’ broadband speeds. Take a look, below.
(Remember, these stats are for Steam’s most recent seven days of usage at the time of writing.)
Steam Global Traffic
|Country||Total bytes downloaded||% of global Steam traffic|
Steam Global Speeds
|Country||Total bytes downloaded||Average download speed|
As you can see, USA rules the world in video game downloads, while South Korea is the place to be if you enjoy gaming online.
