The U.S. is the worldwide leader in technology, so you would expect our cellular Internet speeds to be up there with the world's fastest. As we've seen with broadband Internet speed, however, we don't always measure up.

OpenSignal has released some new charts comparing worldwide cellular speeds. It collects data from Apple and Android smartphones using the OpenSignal app, which also helps you see cellular coverage before you visit an area. So, what did it find?

Here are the top 10 countries with the fastest 4G LTE cellular (given in megabits-per-second):

  1. New Zealand - 36Mbps
  2. Singapore - 33Mbps
  3. Romania - 30Mbps
  4. South Korea - 29Mbps
  5. Denmark - 26Mbps
  6. Hungary - 25Mbps
