Consider this recent article in the Washington Post describing how the Japanese government encouraged a wide array of high speed Internet choices for consumers. So, it’s not just Comcast, slower DSL or classic dial-up. All sorts of providers offer a variety of prices and speeds, most better than what we can score in the states. The chart says it all.

Your Comcast connection probably runs about 1.5 megabits per second. Imagine Japan’s median download speed of 61 megabits per second. Amazing.
