My Data Collection Methodology

The first step was to go to the Speedtest Global Index website and look at the September 2017 data. The Index contained data for 131 countries. The second step was to extract values relating to Caribbean countries only (defined as countries that are either members or associate members of CARICOM). The third step involved keying those values into Excel, filtering them, and then creating a chart based on the results (which is what you see above).
