This is Why America's Internet Speeds are SO slow

Слайд 1

Maybe you’ve already noticed.

Слайд 2

American Internet speeds can be pretty slow.

Слайд 3

In fact, the U.S. ranks behind 11 other countries for average speed!

Слайд 5

So why do we fall behind so many other countries?

Слайд 6

One major reason is that some governments more involved in their country’s Internet capabilities.

Слайд 7

The South Korean government helped build out the nation’s broadband infrastructure and kept it open to lots of Internet providers.

Слайд 8

So its citizens have the highest Internet speeds at some of the cheapest prices.

Слайд 9

The U.S. government is trying encourage more competition too, sort of.

Слайд 10

The Federal Communications Commission just redefined the minimum speeds for broadband Internet.

Слайд 11

New standard vs. Old standard

Слайд 12

The FCC wants to make the case that there aren’t enough broadband competitors.

Слайд 13

Because under the new standard, many Americans only have one choice for broadband Internet -- Comcast.

Слайд 14

The FCC wants the new minimum broadband speed to encourage providers to increase their Internet speed options.

Слайд 15

It could also mean the proposed merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable will be much harder to gain approval.

Слайд 16

What it doesn’t mean is that America’s Internet speeds will start skyrocketing though.

Слайд 17

The government would have to offer some sort of incentive for Internet providers to build more infrastructure and increase their Internet footprint for that.

Слайд 18

And that’s not very likely.

Слайд 19

So for now, Americans will have to settle for our current Internet speeds.

Слайд 20

And hope for just a little more government interaction, and a lot more competition.

Слайд 21

The $19 trillion industry could destroy the Internet One bleeding-edge technology is about to put the World-Wide-Web to bed. It could make early investors wildly rich. Experts are calling it the single largest business opportunity in the history of capitalism... The Economist is calling it "transformative"... But you’ll probably just call it "how I made my millions.” Don't be too late to the party — click here for 1 stock to own when the web goes dark. CLICK TO READ NOW
