The infographic below, created by Zing Broadband showcases how the US is far from the world leader in internet speed and generates the second most traffic on the Internet.
Much of this has to do with the control of high speed access by a few very large companies in the US.
It includes data on both internet speeds and access in the US in comparison to some other leading countries in the world including South Korea, China and The United Kingdom.
Susan Crawford, Harvard Professor and former Special Assistant on Science, Technology, and Innovation Policy for President Obama saw the infographic and impressed by it, tweeted: “Pictures say a thousand words: infographic on US hig-speed internet access.”
