Where should you travel if you want the best Internet connection in the world? A new report says you should book a ticket straight to South Korea.

The East Asian nation topped a ranking of countries by their communications infrastructure released Monday. The ranking, which comes by way of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), tracks a variety of metrics to come up with a benchmark for measuring telecom developments across countries.

South Korea, which also led the ITU’s list back in 2010, is considered by many to be home to the fastest Internet connections in the world.

Coming in second and third place are Denmark and Iceland, respectively. The United States, meanwhile, is sitting in fifteenth place, a one-place improvement from five years ago.
