What would you do if you found out your neighbor was getting Internet that was four times as fast, but was paying much less to get it? You'd want to switch, right?

It's no secret that Americans have the slowest speeds and the poorest customer service when it comes to Internet Service Providers (ISPs). I know you've heard about all the Comcast debacles in the customer service department.

Unfortunately for us here in the U.S., switching to another provider won't necessarily get you better speeds. In fact, if you want better speeds, there are two places in the world that have the blazing-fast Internet you want.

Sadly, you'll have to move to Asia if you're really dedicated to getting super-fast Internet speeds for a decent price. Check out the graphs below, the data doesn't lie. We really need to do something about our sub-par connectivity.
