Speed Matters Report re: Internet

From the release:

The third annual Speed Matters report on Internet Speeds in America was released earlier today – and U.S. connection speeds have not improved significantly in the past year. The results of nearly 413,000 real-time Internet connection speed tests show that the United States continues to lag behind other countries for average upload and download speeds.

The average download speed of U.S. Internet connections is 5.1 megabits per second, significantly below the averages of countries like South Korea (20.1 mbps), Japan (16 mbps) and Sweden (12.7 mbps).

Take a look at the report’s website, which features an interactive map with zip code level data, state by state rankings and the Speed Matters speed test.

Or you can find the full report here (PDF).
