US Broadband Speeds Are Low,

The has released a new survey results of broadband speeds of United States, which lags behind many other industrial countries. But the lag is too large to be comfortable. For an example, Japan's average download is around 68MB/S where we in USA chugs along with 2.35MB/S average. Although I did not see the price mentioned in the report, from peronal experience, 100MB/s fiber connection is not more costly than this higher than avarage connection that I am experincing here in California.
There are many uses for high bandwidth broadband for anyone, which could range from IPTV, VoIP, Video Over IP are some of the uses. Think about your family using two video calls at a time or two VoIP calls. Our infrastructure could hardly manage a single voip call.
The second annual survey of actual Internet speeds of users nationwide shows that the United States has not made significant improvements in deploying high-speed broadband networks in the past year. Our nation continues to lag behind other industrial nations and currently is ranked 15th in the percentage of residents who have broadband access.
