They have the same 250GB bandwidth cap too. They're worse though because they throttle your connection and sandvine prevents you from using torrents at all.

Lame. Scratch that idea then. AT&T's cap is 150 so I wanted to switch just because of the bigger cap but not if you can't torrent. Wish Verizon was here.

Here in the US, we are almost 15th in the world for home broadband, when we should be in the top 5. Our average home broadband speed is approaching 6Mbps at a snails pace, and our infrastructure is ALWAYS highly congested. Yet for some stupid reason our ISPs think that the answer to congestion is to charge people more money, rather than use the huge sums of money they already make to innovate, improve and upgrade their networks. it sickens me sozo.gif

A few months ago, Korea announced they would be phasing 100Mb/s service out because it was too slow and obsolete. Their new plan to be implemented is to bring 1Gb/s to as many places as possible, and also add 54Mb/s WiMAX service, so even if you are in the country, you will have total access.

Japan and Korea, among others, have given up on "broadband" because it is in essence, obsolete, and are moving towards a proper and full Fiber Optic solution, with WiMAX to fill the gaps. Our countries seem to be content in pretending DSL is some kind of grail, and of giving the rights to provide service to whatever corporate carpetbagger shows up with payola to the legislators - rather than companies that actually know and have skill in providing such services.

And really, most of the country doesn't even have DSL, not just because there are people living in poverty, but because the providers simply do not care to provide service unless they can thrift on their infrastructure.

Other countries - they see this as a requirement of progress, and are doing everything possible to make sure they are cutting edge. Here, it's all about the gold clubs, boozefests, massive yachts, high priced prostitutes, and trying to outdo the characters that ran Adelphia down the tubes.
