when i lived in japan, i had 8mbps dsl which only cost me $30 a month. also available was 16mbps, 24mbps, 48mbps and 100mbps. ntt also had fiber optic dsl that i could have gotten that was 1gbps for only $100 a month. now i'm paying $40 a month for comcast 6mbps, and that is the highest they have. so, when will the US start getting really fast internet?
