Internet & Networking A free, new report from the New America Foundation compares cost, speed, and availabilty of internet connectivity in 22 cities around the world. The report concludes that U.S. consumers face comparatively high, rising connectivity costs, even while the majority have very limited choices -- often only one or two providers. The report argues that U.S. broadband policies need to change, otherwise consumer choice will continue to deteriorate.

Why are maximum speeds to residential customers really important?
It's like being obsessed with having the car with the most horsepower. When are you, the car owner, ever going to need all of that top speed?


And do you use anything faster than a Pentium III, more than 128mb ram, and larger than a 10gb HD?

Just curious... and if you do, why?
