U.S. INTERNET SPEED RANKS POORLY

Mashable - 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. . .

If you live in Delaware, Massachusetts, the District of Columbia, or Utah you can be quite pleased with your region's Q3 performance as they each increased upwards of 15% in average connection speed from Q2 measurements.
