When last reported on Akamai's ranking of the regions with the fastest Internet six months ago, the U.S. ranked No. 14. Since then, it's moved up to 11th place -- still short of the coveted top 10. Average peak speed in the U.S.  increased 11 percent over the previous quarter to 36.6 megabits per second, nearly double the global average.
