Internet Speeds and Costs Around the World, Shown Visually

Illustration for article titled Internet Speeds and Costs Around the World, Shown Visually

This awesome infographic shows the internet costs and speeds around the world for the top 20 nations in the ITIF Broadband Rankings. Unsurprisingly, we don't compare too well.


Number one is, predictably, Japan, where the average broadband speed is 60mbps and they pay $0.27 per 1mbps. We, in comparison, average 4.8mbps and pay $3.33 per 1mbps, putting us at #15. Be sure to click the above image to see it in its full glory. [Zach Klein]

To be fair, all those countries with cheap fast internet connections don't have to worry about the sheer size of the broadband infrastructure since they have much much smaller population and populated land compared to the US.

Canada and Australia are not better and I don't even see Russia or China on those charts. (probably due to the lack of data)
