The next time you want to toot your own, Red, White, and Blue color horn in regards to broadband speeds here in the states, look at the chart above and remember one thing…we lag…greatly. It’s a joke. A joke that isn’t funny. Why we are so far behind is beyond me. Lets hope to god congress updates the “official” classification of broadband as something that is faster than the now grossly antiquated quote of 222kbps. Whether or not you’re “giving it your all”, 19th place sucks plain and simple. Heck, South Korea has a goal of 1Gbps speeds for all individual homes means the U.S. is even more out of touch with internet and anything remotely close to real broadband.
