Not very great

Faster than 53% of the US? Well relatively speaking yours is actually pretty decent then. But wow, the US must have some pretty bad internet around, I wonder if some people are still on dial up or something

The early days of the Internet in the US focused on repurposing phone lines and phone line equipment and protocols. Mix that with a low density population and you get slow speeds.  And few not all ISPs have been good about migrating to more modern equipment and protocols.

This stands in stark contrast where smaller and poorer nations who build their Internet infrastructure from scratch used more modern equipment and hence have faster average speeds than the US despite inventing the damn thing.

So yes, some of that is still dial-up, some of up is DSL and some of it is cable but with old ass equipment.
