Oh how sad they have 100mbit for 20$... Why don't you go to some eastern european country/soviet russia to see how crap internet can be. If you happen to be lucky to have net in your area the max you get for the double amount of money is 4mbit and the infrastructure is not developing.

90% of Koreans only uses it for Starcraft anyways ;)

That's really sad in Korea, we have 1GBps in Tokyo for $30,
