Click 'View Detailed Rankings' on the right and chose 'Countries' in the left panel.
We are not on the list and I dread to think where we actually are Sad

Re: Interesting Internet Data

Nearly every country in the top 10 was flattened in WW2.  They rebuilt better, we just rebuilt on existing town/city plans and got stuck with poor infrastructure and are now paying for it.
I remember when I first started playing online with 56k dialup in 1998, Dutch gamers I talked to then had 10mbit connection as part of their rent.  Wasn't till 2001 until we finally got our blistering fast 0.5mb connections.  We are stuck with a turd for infrastructure, it can only be shined so much.

Re: Interesting Internet Data

that's the average speed based on what ookola measured in speed tests though, ive had measurements in the sub 1meg figures despite having a more than decent 6med adsl connection in the past (the congestion was on that site as others gave much better results) since being on fibre (average of 70meg connection) ive had tests that measured sub 2meg download on some sites yet others seconds later showed 50+ so something tells me the "data" set they are using is already corrupted by not having enough bandwidth at the data centre /server to provide accurate test info in the first place.....

it doesn't help they lump in all broadband products under one "average", to give a proper reflection they should be showing the figures for each subset of products (I,e, up to 20meg, up to 40meg, up to 80 meg, up to 120meg) which would then at the very least provide a useful figure to both industry and consumers alike !
just because your paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you

Re: Interesting Internet Data

A more meaningful list for me would be "Best Value"
But I doubt if that would be possible as the "meaningful" part would probably get lost in the spin.

shined lol..
Must agree with you though, those countries essentially had a clean slate to work with. We're stuck with planning permissions, committees, consultations etc. While they are needed for a diplomacy (or whats left of one) it does hinder progress significantly.. along with bankers and other people who bleed the government coffers dry so that they can't use existing government land for anything new.
We have slipped significantly. Our leaders are just too arrogant to realise this and continue to think we're important to the rest of the world. The reality is that the rest of the world is getting on with it and bypassing us.
