This infographic explores the shocking underdevelopment stats of the United States in regards to Internet connection, while also demonstrating the immediate effects on it in a nationwide scale.

As demonstrated through the chart, Asiatic countries are way ahead of the United States when it comes to connectivity. Considering that online businesses will be worth $279 billion in 2015, the fact that so many parts of the country don't have Internet connection affects the nation's economy drastically, while also increasing the economic gap between the poor and the wealthy.
