Internet Speeds and Costs around the World – ITIF Broadband Rankings – Japan on Top !
Just happened to see this broadband speed and costs survey by ITIF ( Information Technology and Innovation Foundation ) and this shows a different picture then what i expected it to be after reading the title . Japan , Korea, Finland and other such countries are on Top while, USA which started the Internet and has maximum Web servers hosted stands at 15th position ( how lame ! ) .
But, as I thought more about it, then there was the actual picture, this graph was about the cost per 1Mbps speed and also the average Broadband speed , Now as you guys already know that established and nations with large geographical area and population have internet connection but the speed and quality is too much distributed. While to internetwork a small country with only big cities or concentrated population zones is really easy as you can use OFC or even some other costly technology to internetwork . While, USA and other big countries have geographically large distances and they rely on Wireless or Copper wires for data transmission and this brings down the overall Average broadband speed.
But still this report presents a impressive picture, I feel like moving to Japan and downloading the whole WWW from there 🙂
