    Default US Ranks 26th in New Broadband Index

    South Korea has the fastest home Internet service in the world, with a 100 times faster than the average in Sudan, the operator of reported on a new Web site that compiles results from consumers running its online test.
    When South Koreans tested their wired connectionsover the past 30 days, they found an average downstream speed of 34.14M bps (bits per second), according to the Net Index, which was introduced on Tuesday by Ookla, the creator of Speedtest. That was several times the worldwide average of 7.67M bps and 100 times as fast as the 340K bps downstream speed in Sudan, the lowest average out of 152 ranked countries.
    Latvia (24.29M bps), the Republic of Moldova (21.37M bps), Japan (20.29M bps) and Sweden rankings were similar, with South Korea leading at 18.04M bps and the U.S. in 27th place with 2.21M bps. The world average was 2.10M bps. (19.78M bps) rounded out the top five countries for downstream broadband. The U.S. was ranked 26th in the world, with an average downstream speed of 10.16M bps.
    Residents of Seoul, the world's fastest major city for broadband, enjoyed just slightly higher bandwidth than the South Korean average, registering 34.66M bps. Riga, Latvia, came in second with 27.90M bps. San Jose, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley, was the fastest U.S. city, with an average of 15.03M bps downstream.

    They will need the fast speed when the unleash the beast on the north.
