Check out how internet costs and speeds around the world compare on this killer infographic.

Out of the top 20 nations in the ITIF Broadband rankings, the good old U.S. of A. ranks in at…fifteen. Ouch. Compare our average of 4.8mbps and $3.33 per 1 mbps to Sweden, where an average of 18mbps costs around $0.63. In a rather unshocking finish, Japan and Korea rank first and second, with 61mbps and 46 mbps, $0.27 and $0.45, respectively.
