    World's Fastest Broadband

    The fastest consumer broadband in the world is the 160-megabit-per-second service offered by J:Com (the largest cable company in Japan.)

    Pricing (at liberty) varies widely by market.

    • In Japan, its 160 Mbps service costs 6,000 yen ($60) per month. That's only $5 a month more than the price of its basic 30 Mbps service. [/*:m:ff7ynl92]
    • In the Netherlands, meanwhile, it charges 80 euros ($107) for 120 Mbps service and 60 euros ($81) for 60 Mbps. [/*:m:ff7ynl92]
    • In the US, cable companies, like Comcast and Cablevision, that are moving quickly to install the fast broadband technology, called Docsis 3, are charging as much as $140 a month for 50 Mbps service.[/*:m:ff7ynl92]
    So why is the price higher in the United States?

    Competition, or the lack of it, goes a long way to explaining why the fees are higher in the United States. There is less competition in the United States than in many other countries. Broadband already has the highest profit margins of any product cable companies offer. Like any profit-maximizing business would do, they set prices in relation to other providers and market demand rather than based on costs.

    Cable executives have given several reasons for why many cable systems in the United States are going very slowly in upgrading to Docsis 3. There's little competition in areas not served by Verizon's FiOS system, which soon will offer 50 Mbps service. And some argue there isn't that much demand for super-high speed.

    Cable executives added another reason: Fear. Other cable operators are concerned that not only will prices fall, but that the super-fast service will encourage customers to watch video on the Web and drop their cable service.

    The industry is worried that by offering 100 Mbps, they are opening Pandora's box. Everyone will be able to get video on the Internet, and then competition will bring the price for the broadband down from $80 to $60 to $40.

    ... mas nagulat ako na "cable technology" ang ginagamit ng Japan... dahil mas mura i-develop at i-deploy (dahil existing na ang infrastructure)... lumalabas na "sideline business" lang ng J:COM ang ISP business!

    ... therefore, kapag i-full blast ng Bayantel (SkyCable) ang development ng broadband nila... malaking ang epekto sa mga ISP na nag-invest ng malaki sa "wireless" internet technology like WiMAX.

    ang mura sa kanila... and to think yung 6300yen halos 30% lang ng sweldo nila a day... ang taas ng standard ng living ng mga japanese... parang ang dali ng buhay dun... yung 3 or 4 days mong sweldo pambayad mo na ng electricity bill mo for the whole month... dito... naku... pahirapan talaga pag bayaran na ng bill.... halos buong sweldo mo monthly maubos sa bills...

  20. My son is presently in Tokyo, Japan and his FTTH (Fiber To The Home) Internet connection with promised bandwidth of 10Mbps (actual is 8Mbps download, 1Mbps upload) is costing him 2,300 yen (P1,150) per month. The maximum promised speed of an FTTH connection in Japan is already 1Gbps (1,000Mbps).
