ranking cities luxembourg download speed and best internet connection

Luxembourg, Differdange, Dudelange, Esch-sur-Alzette... While Internet providers are stepping up the fibre deployment In the Grand Duchy, some cities have the best connection and are at the top in terms of download speed. Here is our full comparison.

Cities with the best Internet speed

Let's start with some explanations about our methodology...

The quality of a connection is measured by different parameters:

  1. Download speed (in Mbit/s): This is essential because it determines how fast you can download files or films. Depending on the download speed, you can have better quality video calls (on Messenger, Whatsapp or FaceTime) and better quality movies on Netflix (in 4K Ultra HD for example)
  2. The speed of sending It allows you to send files faster. The faster you send files, the smoother your video game or video call experience will be.
  3. Latency (in ms): This determines the speed of the network. The lower it is, the more stable and responsive your connection will be. It is therefore an important parameter to take into account.

Finally, all values reported in the ranking are a median: this is the value halfway between the lowest and the highest measure.

The ranking of Luxembourg cities with the best connection

Our ranking concerns five main cities, among the most populated and densest. Some of them are located near the border with France (Differdange, Dudelange, Esch-sur-Alzette), others in the north (Ettelbruck) and, of course, the capital of the Grand Duchy. This ranking is based on data from the SpeedTest website, which is a reference in terms of flow measurement.

Here is the ranking of the cities with the best speeds (Updated June 2022) :

RankingCityDownload speed (Mbit/s)Sending speed (Mbit/s)Latency (ms)
1Differdange174.18110.675
2Esch-sur-Alzette110.1439.408
3Dudelange95.9140.868
4Luxembourg City92.4648.397
5Ettelbruck91.5348.547

Thus, contrary to what one might think, the capital is not the best in the Grand Duchy. At the time of writing, the connection is much faster and more stable on the side of the border with France: notably in Differdange, Dudelange and Esch-sur-Alzette.

Ettelbruck even surpasses the capital in terms of download speed, upload speed and latency, although the median values are very close.

This finding may seem surprising when you know 4G and 5G coverage mapLuxembourg City is at the forefront of 5G deployment. However, in the capital, many more people use the network at the same time: this can cause slowdowns at peak times.

Finally, it is important to note that these rankings are based on measurements made by a third party site and are median figures. Your home Internet speed will probably be different.
