What? American internet is the best internet. We did invent it after all.
That's why we are the best country on this beautiful planet.
Well, we did invent all the connections and physical stuff with DARPA and whatnot, but I am pretty sure that Tim Berners-Lee from CERN did most of the work on the World Wide Web part of it, HTML and all of that, so it was really more of a joint effort sort of thing. I think.
Anyway, my statement from before about speed still stands. We have an average nationwide rate of around 6.7MBPs, compared to South Korea which has 15.7MBPs or something.
