Fiber Optic Internet - Japan Gets 100 Mbps Broadband for $50 Per Monthposted by MR WAVETHEORY at 1/11/2007 09:18:00 AM
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.
