BUSAN, South Korea -- The fastest peak Internet speed is no longer the pride of South Korea—that distinction now belongs to another Asian powerhouse—Hong Kong.

The South China Morning Post reported that the Hong Kong Internet eXchange is credited with making it cheaper for different internet service providers to share content, thus allowing the country to reach a peak speed of 54.1 megabits per second, the first country to crack the 50 barrier, while South Korea maxes out at still an impressive 48.8 megabits per second according to the State of the Internet report issued by Akamai Technologies.

All is not lost however, as South Korea still leads the table for fastest average speed at 14.7 Mbps. The SCMP also noted that to download an HD version of the movie Battleship could be done in about four minutes at the peak broadband internet speed—about the same time it takes to make a cup of coffee.
