Now it’s the U.S. Falling Behind

Any advantage we once had is gone. According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the U.S. is 15th in broadband penetrating, trailing much of Europe, as well as South Korea and Canada. Our performance is even more pathetic. Our average download speed of 8.9 megabits per second is way behind Japan’s (the champ at 93.7 mbps). Australia’s 3G network speeds are of up to 21 mbps where U.S. users are lucky to get one-tenth of that speed.
