Fiber Optic Internet - Japan Gets 100 Mbps Broadband for $50 Per Month

Internet at fiber optic speed is coming soon! JCOM, the largest cable provider in Japan, is offering 100 Mbps cable internet service for $50 per month starting in April 2007. That's light speed!

J:COM, the largest cable MSO in Japan, will use pre-DOCSIS 3.0 channel bonding techniques to deliver a super-fast Internet service that caps downstream speeds at 160 Mbps, and upstream speeds at 10 Mbps. J:COM will sell the new service for ¥6,000 (approximately US $50.50 ) per month.

Meanwhile, Verizon is now offering 50 Mbps connection in Massachusetts and Rhode Island through FiOS - which adds to New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Price gauging at work: $90-$140 per month. For half the speed!

Don't want wires, go with Sprint WiMAX for $55/month for 2 Mbps connection. Just one hitch. You'll have to wait until 2008.

When you hear broadband providers or your colleagues and friends talking about "wireless" they could actually

be talking about two separate things:Wireless

Networking
, having a wire free computer in the house connected to a broadband connection.
Broadband" href="http://www.broadband.co.uk/">Wireless Broadband
, this is a special kind of broadband package

where you can use it at home, but also in certain places when you are away from home. All you need is your phone

number or pastcode to see if either of these broadband connections are available and you can check it at

This is amazing. I can't believe this speed is possible. Presently my provider is offering 256kb/sec speed but it never match that number. I think it is somewhere between 20-100kb/sec. compare broadband sites also showing upto 10 mb/sec speed.
