Re: They're not asking the right question.

said by sonicmerlin:

Has it occurred to you that maybe in the Netherlands the *lowest* speed they can get is 20+ mbps?

Not true.
Cable:
They have a 5 mbps download plan.
»en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UPC_Netherlands

DSL:
They have 8 & 16 mbps download plans.
»translate.google.com/translate?h···rmd%3Div

And that was only 2 examples I found. The many other vendors offering service may also have lower speed plans.

A significant number of people there have access to fiber ISPs, who provide significantly higher speeds and better service than Cable. Furthermore, the 5 mbps could easily be the equivalent of the US ISPs' "poor man's" tier, such as Time Warner's $20/month 348/128 kbps tier that they never advertise.

The point is you don't know anything about the price ranges and demographics, and your assumptions end up being FUD. Which is par for the course with you.

Maybe its just me, but MMH's positions are always pro business/telcom 99.99% of the time. He comes across like a paid astroturfer, which honestly wouldn't surprise me.
