This infographic was submitted to us by the folks at StandOutEssay.com and covers internet speeds and costs worldwide. Here is a sample of some of the data covered:

  • Japan’s average connection speed is 61mbps. Their price per month for 1mbps is $0.27.
  • Korea’s average connection speed is 46mbps. Their price per month for 1mbps is $0.45.
  • Finland’s average connection speed is 22mbps. Their price per month for 1mbps is $2.77.
  • Sweden’s average connection speed is 18mbps. Their price per month for 1mbps is $0.63.
  • France’s average connection speed is 18mbps. Their price per month for 1mbps is $1.64.
  • The US’s average connection speed is 4.8mbps. Their price per month for 1mbps is $3.33.

This infographic is short and to the point, and for what it is (short) it is good. The color scheme works well and all of the data visualization is great. The map is clean and I like the the appropriate countries are called out without cluttering the section. The graph at the bottom could use a little tweaking – the line coming from the U.S.A. bar should reach all the way to the pie graph in the same way that the line from Japan is. It might also be a good idea to highlight other countries (perhaps ranks 2-5?) as well. Infographics typically have around 5 data sets, so adding some more data (Who has internet access in these countries? How do different wireless companies compare?) would really take this infographic to the next level.
