(Health-NewsWire.Net, March 28, 2015 ) Westendorf, Tirol -- Traveling the world is an exciting adventure, but two of the most relevant concerns for individuals of the modern age are the risk of contracting a fungal infection and having adequate access to Internet connectivity. While Mountainbreeze Naturals can't help with Internet speeds, the firm's antifungal soap is aiding individuals address highly contagious fungal infections that can be easily contracted even in the most hygienic environments.
"Connectivity specialists at Ookla conducted a study comparing and ranking the download speeds in megabytes per second across 198 countries," said Mountainbreeze Naturals founder, Helga Riedmann. "The results were astounding."
For those who are curious about the Internet speeds where they will be traveling, a look around Ookla's real-time interactive world map provides individuals with a birds-eye view of broadband and mobile connectivity speed, concentrations and availability. Ookla has set the standard for world Internet metrics, just as Mountainbreeze Naturals has established the benchmark by which antifungal soaps are measured.
Despite boasts by Internet providers, the connectivity speeds in 26 countries are faster than those in the U.S. The average speed in the U.S. is 33.89 Mbps, compared to Singapore that comes in at a blazing 111.14 Mbps. The top five fastest countries for Internet speeds are Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Monaco and Romania. Even Estonia, Taiwan and Luxembourg surpass the U.S. for Internet speed.
Those are important numbers for travelers to keep in mind, especially if they plan to stream videos, Skype or research local places of interest. The recommended speed needed for Skype is 1.5 Mbps, 5.0 Mbps for Netflix and 1 Mbps for YouTube. Locales that include Bolivia at 2.48 Mbps, or DR Congo and Gambia with speeds ranging from 1.20 Mbps to 1.53 Mbps, will generate frustration.
While slow Internet speeds can be remedied by relocating, fungal infections live uniformly around the world. They're highly contagious, invisible to the naked eye and can survive for days on sheets, bathroom floors and carpeting. They're easily transmitted by touching an infected object.
Internet speeds can be anticipated with the assistance of Ookla, but the chances of contracting a fungal infection can't be calculated. The antifungal soap of tea tree oil by Mountainbreeze Naturals offers an effective treatment and preventative for fungal infections that can safely travel with consumers around the world.
