Quote:Fiber speeds in Europe averaged 66.57 Mbps, compared to 41.35 Mbps. Europe's cable operators delivered the fastest performance of all, averaging 66.57 Mbps, comfortably ahead of the U.S. figure of 25.48 Mbps.Canadian internet and cell makes the US look like paradise, and the US is absolutely embarrassing third world shit compared to Finland and Europe.
the cheapest available services in the 30-100 Mbps range were between 21 percent and 38 percent cheaper in the EU than in the U.S., while the best deals on services promising over 100 Mbps were between 13 and 34 percent cheaper in the EU than in the U.S. More: http://www.itworld.com/article/2996825/e...onest.html
Providers play a bandwidth game there, that is truly meaningless. That's not how it works. They want people to believe it's like some analog water pipe that can only handle so much water. Use more and get charged. What a ripoff. Fiber optics can handle anything you throw at it. It's surprising more people are not ballistic about it, but corporations count on your stupidity to line their wallet.
Canada is the worst place I've ever been in terms of cost and benefit ratio.
I really hope this new PM busts those monopolies right the hell up.
If not he's Harper II.
Great country and people, shitty costly internet and cell service. The US has no excuse, they spend all their money on a never ending foo foo war on "terrorism"
None left over for decent internet infrastructure. The open ended war against an enemy that doesn't exist in the first place has left bridges and highways crumbling, let alone worry about decent internet.
