      According to the data released by Point Topic, Scandinavia and South-East
      Asia have the highest ratios of fast internet connections (DSL, cable
      broadband). Slovakia lags behind, and so does the US.

      South Korea has the highest number of fast connections per 100 people in
      the world: 14.2. Taiwan and Japan are high up, too.

      In Europe, Norway has 12.3, and the rest of the Nordic countries, as well
      as the Netherlands and Switzerland are close. Canada with 8.4 is not far
      behind Finland.

      The US, on the other hand, has merely 4.8 fast internet connections per
      100 people, which is behind Spain (6.3), Australia (5.7), Austria and even
      post-communist Estonia (5.2). Slovakia has only 0.95 fast connections per
      100 people, not far behind the Czech R. with 1.2. Other Central European
      post-communist countries -- Poland, and even more so Hungary and Slovenia
      -- are ahead of them, and so are the Baltics.
