Internet speeds and costs around the World

Just a few days ago it was reported that Broadband internet access became a legal right in Finland. Starting next July, every person in Finland will have the right to a one-megabit broadband connection, according to the Ministry of Transport and Communications. Finland is the world's first country to create laws guaranteeing broadband access. The Finnish people are also legally guaranteed a 100Mb broadband connection by the end of 2015.

I publish now this interesting graphics with the top 20 nations and their internet speed, penetration and cost. It is often said that (unrestricted) internet access is a good measurement for freedom and democracy. If so, then Italy and the USA are not in such a good shape.

In fact, it reflects our reality pretty well.
