Global Download Speeds

While testing out my cable modem speeds at home (10mbps down, 1mbps up), I ran across the Global Stats page at There are some eye-opening results there.

The #1 ISP in the world is giving out almost 60mbps! Even #10 in the top 10 is offering over 30mbps.

Neither Canada nor the US is in the top 10 countries by average download speed. Even Russia beats us! (North America averages 5044kbps).
