No matter where you are the question of internet connect speeds will eventually pop up and like a competition there are folks who brag about their 10 Mbps or even 50 Mbps, while the rest of the country struggle along with just 2 Mbps or maybe 4 Mbps.
So prepare to be crushed by the internet connection speed that can be received at Google HQ in California, connecting your laptop there would give your machine a reality check. The speed obtained there according to the Ookla Net Index is a staggering 523.96 Mbps with an upload speed of 147.20 Mbps.
The average speed around the US is around 10 Mbps, while in Europe the figure is closer to 12 Mbps, Google wins again!
