Top Internet Speet Rankings 2013

Ever wondered who has the fastest internet in the world? The answer may surprise you.

According to, Japan and South Korea are ranked the top two fastest in the world. South Korean internet users surfed at an average speed of 13.3 Mbps, 53 percent faster than Americans whose connection speed averaged at 8.7 Mbps.  By comparison, the United States is ranked 8th in the global speed ranking.

The global average connection speed was measured at 3.3 Mbps, after having passing 3 Mbps for the first time in the first quarter of this year.

Fascinating to see the breakout on this. Wonder if it means the South Koreans are more data hungry or just that they love to chat more?
