The US is behind in the speed and price of internet compared to other countries, such as Tokyo, Paris, and Hong Kong. In these countries, a high-definition movie would take around seven seconds to download on a $30-a-month connection. On a $300-a-month connection, the movie would take around 1.4 minutes for people in New York, Washington, and Los Angeles. According to a report by The Cost of Connectivity, smaller cities in the US (such as Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Lafayette, Louisiana) had the same speeds as these other countries. How was this possible?
