yes, i suppose that's one aspect of technology in which the USA lags
some other countries, apparently due basically to FCC regulations.
Canada has much more broadband due to better regulation & lower prices
& the federal govt has a program to extend it even to remote regions;
IIRC the UK govt also plans to serve its (less) remote areas.

however, i was really looking ahead  2 - 3 yr ,
when broadband will have extended to many more areas in most countries.
