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 doesn't matter if his teenager uses the internet 24 hours a day. What matters is having enough bandwidth to accommodate your demand as needed. As I said in a previous post, each individual is best suited to determine what their own needs are. It's common sense that some people have far greater demand while others have far lower.


We live in a society in which people expect instant gratification, immediate responses. I'm just saying that technology is not always the answer to these kinds of expectations; perhaps having more realistic expectations is. This post will be modded down by small minds.
