All countries where internet lags so far behind the rest of the world it's ridiculous.

The developed nations in Asia? Sure thing. But "Asia" is far too large an area, and too populous, to lump together as either "good" or "bad" in any one area.

So you can take your "uneducated, lol-worthy response" comments and shove them up your arse.


Also, according to the list you provided (Net Index), Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan all rank in the top-10 worldwide in MBPS. They are far and away the top Asian nations on the list.

Those 5 countries combined also only account for ~5.4% of Asia's population. And 1.4% of it's total land mass. (in fact, on that note, look at the population density of the top 9 countries on that mbps list... there's one fairly common denominator in play.)

The next highest Asian country on the list is Mongolia, at #43. They also have a population smaller than Vancouver, though. China doesn't break the top-60 on that list. Most of Asia is in the Dark Ages of the Internet.

You say "Asia is so far ahead of us".
I say "less than 6% of Asia is so far ahead of us. The rest of them are so far behind that the difference is staggering".
Did I say ALL of Asia? No I said Asia... I MEANT it to be generalized and focused on the most developed regions because CANADA is highly developed. Why on earth would I use an example where I compared G8 Canada to whatever little Indonesian village you are currently visiting?

The top quality internet of the regions in the United States, Europe, and Asia comparable to Canada leave it in the dust.
