Americans invented the Internet, but the Japanese are running away with it.
Broadband service here is eight to 30 times as fast as in the United States -- and considerably cheaper. Japan has the world's fastest Internet connections, delivering more data at a lower cost than anywhere else, recent studies show.
The Japanese are getting download speeds of 61 mbps over fiber optic cable.
Damn. Imagine how much por-, er, music one could transfer with that.
