Top 10 Countries With The Highest Average Internet Speeds

As Americans, we like to think that we are ahead of most other countries in a lot of ways. We created the computer and the internet, so it makes sense that we would have the fastest internet connections in our country. It would also make sense that the average internet speed would be pretty high as well. Well that is not the case. In fact, we are not even in the top 10 when it comes to countries with the fastest average internet connection speeds. Below is the list of the top regions when it comes to average internet speed with the actual average speed listed.

1. South Korea - 11.7 Mbps

2. Hong Kong - 8.6 Mbps

3. Japan - 7.6 Mbps

4. Romania - 7.2 Mbps

5. Latvia - 6.2 Mbps

6. Sweden - 6.1 Mbps

7. Netherlands - 5.3 Mbps

8. Czech Republic - 5.2 Mbps

9. Denmark - 5.2 Mbps

10. Switzerland - 5.1 Mbps

And the United States of America; the land of the free and the home of the brave; the country that created the computer and fostered the internet; where everything is fast and instant; we are a number 22 on the list with only 3.8 Mbps of average internet speed:

22. United States - 3.8 Mbps
