Internet Speeds In The U.S. Have Tripled Since 2011

What was your internet connection speed back in 2011? What is it now? I can't complain, my connection speed went from 50Mbps in 2011 to 300Mbps for the same price, thanks to free upgrades from my ISP.

U.S. Internet connection speeds have tripled over 3-1/2 years to keep up with consumer demands for streaming video and downloading content but the United States still lags many other countries. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) said in a report on Wednesday average download connection speeds had increased to nearly 31 megabits per second (Mbps) in September 2014 from about 10 Mbps in March 2011.
