Look at Speedtest's compiled results for fixed service (ie: not mobile).

Average speed:

	Singapore (1st) is 166 Mb/s.
	US (8th) is 83.2 Mb/s.
	Canada (16th) is 77 Mb/s.

All of western Europe is slower than the US, except Sweden.  Denmark, 
The Netherlands and Switzerland are essentially tied with the US.
