America is going to fall drastically behind the rest of the world, particularly China, when it comes to high-speed broadband internet access, according to Rethink Technology Research. The future of the internet is fiber and gigabit broadband and China is leading the way: a series of huge planned rollouts will take the country from its current four per cent coverage to 42 per cent of the Middle Kingdom's 456 million households in the next five years. By contrast, the United States will have only 37.7 million users with super-fast internet by 2023 – just over 11 per cent coverage. The report argues that such a disparity represents "a massive advantage to Chinese businesses."
