Re: 1/10 fiber cost

because the big players have halted new deployments for uverse and fios-like services. We're years away from those services in new areas.

If someone can come up with something cheaper for even a fraction of the results, then these companies will scramble to take advantage.

we are kinda years behind. Europe has seen ADSL2+ with IPTV/Satellite combo years before VDSL with comparable speeds came to the U.S.

In rural areas, Europe does not use wood for electric, telephone poles. They use concrete material that holds well. They have steps than enable technicians to go up without ladder.

EuroDoCSIS has more room than US Docsis and they have always had faster speeds. With Docsis 3.0 they have already 120Mb/s, while we struggle a bit with 50mb/s as the fastest tier.

Your privacy is protected. They don't use Social Security Number for everything. Its easier to find a job, especially the one for which you overqualify (lets say you look for a work after you got college diploma but in the meantime want to work seasonal at an electronics store).

They were the first to implement biometric chips in password before US.

need more examples?

The money they used to try and milk DSL at 5 feet how much fiber could have been laid with that money? No one is doing these lab experiments for free.

And all of europe has national ID cards. The USA has none, technically.

The patents for super dooper DSL will wind up in the next iPhone chipset as noise cancellation on a bus inside a microcontroller.

State/ license IDs are ok. That's why it is United States. Passport/nexus card can always be used as a second national id. But I really would want to see requirements for taking writing exams to go away when you move to another state and need to change Driver's License.
