Well, yeah, but there's a reason!
"In unrelated news - wink, wink, nudge, nudge - union group Communication Workers of America released a state-by-state report Monday that showed US internet connection speeds are far behind other industrialized nations."
There's a good reason for that: it's called our government has not put any initiatives forward to wire the country up and promote broadband usage. Hell, in Japan, a 10Mb line is about the equivalent of mediocre-fast dialup here. Know why? Because the government paid to wire the country and give everyone these benefits!
