US, still the bandwidth daddy


US consumers maynot have ample bandwidth, but from the looks of it, when it comes to sheer capacity, US is still the bandwidth big-daddy. This data collected by Telegeography says it all. Of course, it doesn’t mean anything to consumers who are thirsty for bandwidth! That’s the irony, isn’t it!

Makes me wonder what the oversubscription rates are on other country’s cheap 10+ Mbps broadband services are, if they are paying more for backbone than US ISPs.
