  1. In The Netherlands 120 Megabit connections are sold for 50 euro/month (roughly 70 dollars). Still, a big part of the country only has a max. of 8/12 Mbit.

  2. Are these numbers/metrics for upstream, downstream or both? Upstream bandwidth is typically a fraction of downstream as connections are usually asymmetrical.

    1. @ipvideo: these numbers/metrics are for downstream — they are representative of the speeds that Akamai observes from users downloading content from the Akamai platform.
