Press reports on internet download speeds

Today's English edition of the Chosun Ilbo online carried a report headlined "Seoul's Seocho Internet Connection Fastest in the World."  The report indicated that the U.S. company pandonetworks had compared connection speeds of countries around the world last year and found that Seocho-dong in Seoul had a download speed of 33.5 mbps.
As readers of this blog will know, I recommend consulting the quarterly reports State of the Internet reports  issued by Akamai.  See my post on the Akamai report for the second quarter of 2011.  The third quarter 2011 Akamai report has now been released and shows that Korea maintains its world number one ranking in download speeds.   Figure 9 of that report shows Taegu as having the fastest download speeds in South Korea at 21.5 mbps, followed by Taejon at 20.1 mbps.
