For the PDF challenged the short list is

1. South Korea

2. Japan

3. Finland

For the American perspective the notables are

11. Canada

15. United States

30. Mexico

Countries are ranked by factors of Household Penetration, Average Download Speed, Price per Mbps.

By the way, where is Pakistan and India??? :|

man isps in japan have alot of spare bandwidth and abt the contention ratios i cant say

but i have a friend in japan who has a 100 mbps connection and he says that all day long he gets 12.5 MBps with no disconnection so clearly the ratio is less

man i cant understand one thing

they have such low curency(half 4rm pak;1yen=0.53~pkr) but stil they are ahead in technolngy frm many rich countries

today i heard in news tht pakistan wil take loan 4rm japan and i was like WTF?

@asad_n

pakistanz avg speed iz not tht low

check at speedtest.net in global stats

pakistanz avg is abt higher 4rm ~46% of the rest of world

so net here iz not tht bad or may b dial up users dont perform speed test and thus they are not listed in record of speedtest and the avg ranking is rong

Unfortunately, no. When did you send it and what was the title? It never reached my inbox at least. I don’t bother looking into spam box as it’s pondered with emails on hourly basis.

Edit: Got it and replied. It was in my gmail’s spam folder.
