The Need for Speed

U.S. entrepreneurs are the world's most wired, but they waste a lot of time waiting for Web pages to load. Only 21% of small- and medium-size companies in the U.S. have high-speed Internet access, says AMI Partners, compared with 59% in Germany and 40% in Japan. Why are we so slow?

Bose expects the gap to close within two years.Return to top
