US is trailing other industrial countries in broadband penetration

I'm not sure that's the case, AFAIK the US holds its own.

No, the one you want is around the middle. US looks like just under 13% at #12, while 2-3 are around the 18% mark and 17-20 at around 8%. So this looks like a nice comfortable spot right in the middle. It's remarkable that US DSL penetration is unusually low, there is only one other country where this is below 5%, while many countries have very little cable.
