Cable


Need to get a user from a "budget" japanese or korean home ISP in here so we can all be jealous about triple digit speeds

As far as I know, northern Europe has the best connection speed, by far.

Could it be because CA is not the center of the universe, Joe?

Well, I grant you that it's a few hundred miles from here to Cupertino, California (which is, according to several people who I work with, the proper center of the universe) but still...

FWIW, many of my friends do not see anything under 30 Mb/s with their fiberoptic connections. (I make download lists and give them so we can watch movies/series at home late at night, once we are done with work)

It just so happens that Istanbul is the undisputed center of the universe when it comes to certain issues like large scale arms smuggling, politics, money laundering (no small potatoes), wholesale dealing of drugs and contraband of all variety, secret services, both known and unknown, and unreported wealth. Big *** money.
Fireworks never cease during the deepest recessions, people drive around in half a million dollar cars (yeah, they are really expensive here), and burn $10/gallon gas...
All these people need the internet to take care of business.

An interesting little town of about 20 million.
Definitely more exciting than the states IMO.

I was deployed to egypt for a year. We had air cards much like sprint/verizon/att do around here. Total cost (including air card) was $340 for one year of service. The network was '3.5 g' and transfer rates were supposed to be up to 7.2Mb/Sec. Actual throttled rate that I saw in downloads was about 300KB/S, or about 2.4Mb/Sec. Ping times to the US, across the atlantic ocean, were about 150ms. Monthly download 'soft' cap was 6GB/Month per a 'fair usage law' in Egypt. There was no hard cap.

They can do it in a 3rd world country.

Get me that same service for the same rate here in the US, and consider me your first customer!

I am stuck with the company that services my apartment complex and man I though my cable was slow. At least it is dirt cheap.
