Maybe America Isn't So Behind in Broadband

Dekortage (697532) writes "The U.S. is not so behind in broadband, at least according to the Connectivity Scorecard. Commissioned by Nokia and Siemens and designed by British economics professor Leonard Waverman, the study ranked the U.S. first of in being "usefully connected," saying: "PC penetration of businesses is excellent, and the country is first overall in terms of secure server deployment... a large proportion of companies buy and sell online, business spending on IT is high, and enterprise telephony also enjoys good penetration." Maybe it isn't size of your bandwidth that matters, but how you use it."

Unfair to compare U.S. to Korea broadband... (1)

VinylRecords (1292374) | more than 5 years ago | (#26959479)

It's unfair to compare U.S. to South Korea broadband as all traffic in South Korea is government mandated to be used for Starcraft: Brood War and other Blizzard products. If Starcraft wasn't in Korea they would have near light speed internet.
