According to Akamai’s Q3 State of the Internet report, the United States’ internet speed did not qualify for a place in the top ten list of countries with the fastest internet in the world, and its average overall speed has actually decreased by 2.4% year-over-year from 2008 to 2009.
The United States actually ranked 18th out of 203 nations tested in terms of average connection speeds, falling behind speed leaders like South Korea, Japan, and Hong Kong.
With our internet speeds DECLINING, and companies like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T wanting us to pay extra for download rates. How will we ever keep up or catch up? If you want MyFI or to tether they would like you to pay for your download rates.
