European ISPs exaggerate their performance, US ISPs are more honest

From next April, European ISPs will have to be more open about the minimum, normally available and maximum speeds they can expect, and make it easier for customers to cancel their contracts if those speeds are not delivered, as a result of new rules introduced by the European Commission. While that may add a bunch of footnotes to advertisements, though, it's unlikely to change the pace at which operators roll out new technology.
