America's record in expanding broadband communication is so poor that it should be viewed as an outrage by every consumer and businessperson in the country. ...
...The United States is 15th in the world in broadband penetration, according to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). ...
...Asian and European customers get home connections of 25 to 100 megabits per second (fast enough to stream high-definition video). Here, we pay almost twice as much for connections that are one-twentieth the speed. ...

*Grrrrr! and I am actually happy with Comcrap.
