If I lived in Japan, I could have have a 26Mbit DSL connection via
Yahoo! BroadBand (Y! BB). Holy crap!
What's it cost, you wonder? A bit less than my 1.5Mbit DSL or
3Mbit Cable in the US.
Think about it this way. In the 20-30 seconds it normally takes to
establish a dial-up connection and get an IP address, you could have
downloaded 60MB worth of data.
If you don't live close to the central office, you have to suffer
with the slower DSL connections: 12Mbit, 10Mbit, or 6Mbit.
Oh, the pain...
