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.

It's funny that some of you think you're better qualified to determine a persons needs than they are themselves. Then when people bother to go into detail, they receive criticism. What childish behavior for a talk about internet access speeds.

To those of you who don't think anyone needs fast internet access, we get it. You're out-of-touch. You should accept the fact that other people have usage that differs from your own and thus needs that differ. Be oblivious all you like but try to be less willing to look foolish.
