The Connectivity @tlas: Internet Speeds Around the World

The country with the fastest Internet speed is Singapore according to this comprehensive, worldwide infographic created by the HP team.
This global Internet speed index shows that Singapore is the country with the fastest broadband Internet, reaching average download speeds of up to 238.59 megabits per second. Why is Singapore’s Internet so fast? There are several theories.
Since modern Singapore is a relatively “new” country, having been founded in the late 19th century, it was developed with infrastructure that is compact and easily upgraded. Furthermore, the economic freedom that is pro-business, pro-expat, and pro-technology has attracted many entrepreneurs who have helped create a high-speed, connected society.
