Fastest internet in the world?

I've seen more than one source stating that South Korea has the fastest Internet connections in the world. This may be true, but it doesn't translate to fast connections at South Korea's ubiquitous Internet gaming centers, called PC "bang," which translates as PC "room."

Bang is spelled 방 in Korean but just look for the letters PC and you're in business.

You'll find at least one PC bang on pretty much every street in Korea, and nearly all of them are open 24 hours, even in remote towns. After having been to at least a dozen of these places, which are easy to find because all you have to do is look for the letters PC on the sides of buildings, I can promise you they are not sporting the world's fastest Internet.

Most PC bang still use IE6. Yes, Internet Explorer 6. From the year 2001.
