The United States is 13th in the world with an average speed of 5.8 Mbps. Living in a small town, I'm not privileged enough to enjoy lightning fast speeds, but I get by. Boston has the highest average in the country with 8.4 Mbps. However, that's nothing compared to Japan and South Korea, who have an average speed of 9.1 and a whopping 17.5 Mbps, respectively - which should come as a surprise to no one. The South Koreans need that lighting speed to school the world at Starcraft.
