Top 50 best connected cities on Internet speed - no U.S. cities on.

While United States is the Internet father and one could imagine that U.S. have the best connection speeds, we are wrong. According to a report of Akamai, countries with better Internet connections are South Korea, Japan and Sweden, which account for the top 50 with the best connected cities in the world.

As we can see in the following table, South Korea leads with the best internet connections in the world in an average of 21.8 Mbps in the city of Taegu, followed by Japan with 14.4 Mbps in the city of Shimotsuma, Sweden comes third with averages of 11.3 Mbps in the city of UmeĆ„, and finally comes China with connections of 8.7 Mbps in Hong Kong.

Only after the top 50, shows U.S. with an average of 8.4 Mbps connections.
