I just love how cheap internet is in the U.K. Our government(not just Obama) needs to seriously step up it's promise of a faster internet. I am paying very very good terms already for my 18Mb/s connection @ $55 a month

Well, fast broadband speeds are nice, but when ISPs charge $100.00/mo. for 50 Mbps speed it's kind of like," what's the point?"  Higher speeds mean nothing to many people when they are unaffordable.

Any word on what kind of bandwidth caps they will be imposing on these lucky few?  I could hit by 250 GB cap with Comcast lickety split at 1Gbps.

That type of licence agreement with the ISP makes sense for London...

In london, only the very wealthy own their own home as an independant structure.  Most of the wealthy simply own or lease really nice condo's.  The average Jon's and average Jenny's live in apartments or condo's.

Heck, in London they have such bad traffic that the city charges  £10 ($15.77 USD) *per day*  to drive in the congestion zone.

"We’ve taken it as a sad fact that the US tends to lag behind the rest of the world in terms of broadband speeds"

 

Lol, try Canada ... complete with ridiculous caps.

No kidding. The state of ISP's in Canada makes me so angry. It's such an obviously corrupt system it's insane that these companies aren't shut down. The only thing we can do is tell everybody you know to switch to TekSavvy. Eventially Rogers and Bell will be forced to compete.

From what I remember UK has become a police state. US is not far behind but I would rather have crappy speed with some semblance of privacy then vice verse.
