Looking for cheap broadband? Try Japan! I see plenty of people in the US telling me just how cheap their broadband access is. Yes, being stuck in parts of Europe where broadband is expensive has it's downsides. Then again, I look towards Japan, and see just how far in front of us they are.

Fancy an 8Mbit/sec broadband connection? Well, if you're on Yahoo Broadband, that's nearly the slowest speed they offer! Fancy a 50Mbit/sec broadband connection? That's ok, they can provide it! Oh, and if you don't want to pay too much for it, how does that 50Mbit/sec connection for less than $40  a month sound? No problem - Yahoo Broadband Japan can do it! So, how come so many countries around the world are stuck at less than 8Mbit/sec? Just what is going on that means so many other places are so far behind?

Any thoughts as to why we're lagging behind so much?
