    Yeah but Japanese internet is like 10 times faster than North American internet. I'd pay for that any day. I only have a 20 mb/s connection.

    Eventually all internet companies will be like cell phone comanies. There will be different packages at different trasnfer rates. We are seeing the beginning of that now. Then hopefully we will see prices start to fall.

    I would kill for your rates and unlimited usage. I remember when Comcast limited it to 250 GB and people in USA were mad about it. Man, imagine my 15 GB/month.
