Although the data takes into account only the ASEAN nations and few developed countries, It would have been more interesting, if the inforgraphic had mentioned at least which country has the WORLD FASTEST Internet speed. For example in South Korea 100Mbps is average. But no idea whether any country has a faster connection.

As far as my broadband service is concerned, PCCW cannot even reach the speeds available in the Philippines.
