And the Japanese, and the Koreans.

I had dinner with some good Japanese friends in recent times, and a passing glance was given to the topic of home internet.

When I told them what the experience was like for your average Joe in the UK, it was just incomprehensible to them why people would put up with paying so much for so little.

Also, apparently line faults are rare in Japan and when they do happen, unlike in the UK where you have to practically get on your knees and beg BT to come in a reasonable timeframe, in Japan things get fixed somewhat quicker.
