Triple The Speed But US Still Lags In Internet Speed Comparisons

by - 5 years ago

One of the most competitive things you can mention is your internet speed. Being able to download and watch your latest games and movies at the press of a button relies on a steady and speedy connection, something that few have. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) have released a report that shows something that might upset some people, even though all it does is say your internet is more than likely faster than it used to be.

The report states that between March 2011 and September 2014 internet speeds within the US tripled, jumping from 10MBPS to 31MBPS. While this may sound amazing, in comparison to other countries like Canada and Japan the US still ranks 25 out of 39 countries as stated by a study in 2013.

While this all sounds amazing you have to remember just how much extra bandwidth people are using on an everyday basis. With the FCC estimating that over 60% of internet traffic is video, estimated to rise to over 80% by 2019, you may need that fiber optic broadband sooner than you think. Don’t forget that the next big thing is 4k, with such a data consuming technology set (or at least many hope) to become the new standard you could soon see speeds of MBPS not being enough to catch up with your favourite shows or watch that new Netflix or Prime movie.

    The U.S. govt. needs to force the main ISP monopolies to open up their exchanges/datacentres to competitors

      I would be happy for them making bandwidth caps on cable illegal first. I have a 200mbps line, but if I download more than 450gb/mo I get charged extra. Caps make no sense if you aren’t on mobile.
