In today's day and age, being connected and online is the backbone of society and economics as a whole, but there are those out there who think that American Internet could use a boost in this regard.

This infographic entitled 'Why American Internet Is Lagging' by Internet Providers explores not only why American Internet is slow compared to other first world nations, but the socioeconomic impacts of literally lagging behind in connectivity. The biggest blame that the infographic lays down in the case of slow American Internet is the lack of competition in the marketplace as well as a lack of governmental regulation. The infographic is also quick to point out that slow American Internet doesn't just affect general web surfing, but can affect a user's ability to apply for work and telecommute.
