I say this all the time in internet comparison threads where people get all envious and stuff. There's no free lunches.

A connection like those that are the norm in Europe or other countries where people are stacked on top of one another like sardines is available here in North America, it just costs more because unlike those said countries were not stacked on top of one another like sardines. A price of a house here might get you a flat in some of those countries, we just have to spend the difference on a really expensive internet connection if we want the best of both worlds much like they will pay out the rear if they want something bigger than a flat. I'd say here in North America we probably end up at a net gain even after considering the really expensive internet connection.
