On the eve of this traditional American holiday, we've got some news that may be obvious to those who've ventured to grandparents' and relatives' houses where the Internet is less-than-speedy: Download speeds in the U.S. suck, a new report confirms.

Network diagnostics company Ookla on Tuesday released its most recent country-by-country Internet Service Provider (ISP) "Speed Test" results. According to Ookla's report, the U.S. ranks a mere 31st in the world when it comes to Internet download speeds -- behind much of Europe and Southeast Asia.

the rest of the story and a chart! Ha.

All of the countries/regions faster than the US are also much smaller in area. It's a matter of scale and cost (and probably a whole lot of government subsidies).
