Re: another good thread to bash the U.S.A
You don't have those speeds because you don't want to pay what it would cost to get them HERE.
Next BBR can post the price of oil in Saudi Arabia and how it's awful that we can't get nickel/gallon gas here.
Get the hell out, Oil is more available over there because it is underneath their soil. Bandwidth is limited by hardware technology, which America has the same technology available for the same price. ISP's don't want the internet to be that accessible and easily shared.
We don't have fiber strung literally between every block as they do. Our population density and civil design is vastly different. That's why it costs more here.
Go one and buy a couple Cisco routers and set up your ISP. You'll find out exactly how much it costs and the idea that it's a conspiracy to keep people off the net is as absurd as it sounds.
