We are so technologically advanced, but when it comes to broadband, it's sure hard to believe that.
It's not any excuse, but on the flipside many European countries don't get nearly anything as good, and their bandwidth caps are utterly absurd. I think it was 5GB caps in Belgium for ~60 euro lines? JMke at Madshrimps posted the info but I don't recall specific numbers now.

The bad news is bandwidth caps are taking off in the US, Comcast has them (although they are rather generous so far) and Time Warner is now expanding their bandwidth caps. $55 a month gets you a 40GB monthly cap on a 15MBps line... that takes what, 45 minutes to reach at full speed?
