But being 1000 kilometers from mainland isn’t without its challenges.

How Fast is the Internet in Galapagos?

Most hotels have Wi-Fi and there are a number of internet cafes.

And they all have something in common: the internet is really, really slow!

How slow is it? It ranges from a high of 250 Kbps to a low of 100 Kbps. And that is when there was a connection. Galapagos internet is notorious for being unstable. Sometimes there simply is no connection.

To put this into perspective, the average global internet speed is 23.4 Mbps (or 93.6 times faster than the best Galapagos internet). The average speed on mainland Ecuador is 5.4 Mbps.
