Broadband Map 2012


Published on

This info-graphic ranks OECD countries based on advertised cost and speed of broadband.

As broadband speed and price are a nation's digital currency in the global technology economy, they are good indicators of a country's health in that regard.

  • From what I can tell, this looks at maximum download speed and costs based on quoted price from a telco? In Canada, caps are low and the price you pay per month is usually more than the quoted due to overage fees. This infographic should consider upload speeds too which are unusually low in Canada. Even Roger's top plan only has 2 Mbps upload speed. In Asia, broadband is often 100 mbps each way, up and down. IMO, this paints an unusually rosy picture of Internet speed and costs in Canada.
