....is a crock.
This chart by pingdom shows the world's top 50 net using countries (the bracketed number by the side of the names shows ranking by number of users) and the average connection speeds. Even the best in the region, Chile, is mediocre. And places like Brazil, with the 5th biggiest net population in the world but ranked 37th on speed...that's pathetic. By the way, you pay through the nose for the service, too.
I knew all this, but maybe you didn't. So now you do.
