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.

The internet suffers from reliability issues.
They are a total broadband monopoly. Next option is dialup.

Downstream isn't too bad on satellite (not great, but not bad). Upstream is pathetic.
