America’s faces internet problem from past many years. Many Americans face the slow speed of the internet. If you are living in America and getting a download speed of more than 50MBs it’s really fine but most of the American gets way less speed than this. It’s not your ISPs fault or any other problem but the whole of America is facing this problem. From past 3 years American ranks outside of the top 10 according to the average speed. An average US citizen is getting around 15 MB of connection speed while it is 30mbs in South Korea.
It’s really strange that one of the biggest economies in the world is facing this kind of problem. To find out the root of this problem, we have to go back many years. Back when the first telephonic network was established. In the start, America whole network was built on copper wires but it was slowly being replaced by coaxial cable.
Why Americans are Facing Internet issues
Majority of American network is implemented using coaxial cable and it is very old technology. Now in 2010, American government started to transform their network using broadband. But the transforming whole of the network takes time and it is very expensive. It is slowly being transformed but until it is not completed, America will continue to face these internet problems.
Another reason for the internet problem in America is that it is really expensive as compared to other parts of the world. Residents of Network can get more than 600mbs of speed in $300 but it is around 25$ in Korea and other parts of the world.
