Verizon Increases Speeds AGAIN!!!

Recommended Posts

Its been said before, wiring the nation of Japan costs alot less then re-wiring the USA.

person per sq mile USA = 74.4

person per sq mile Japan = 866.8

I guess when you think about it like that it makes more sense that Japan is able to have much better internet speeds. By the looks of that picture if the U.S. was as small as Japan Verizon would be done wiring the entire country and everyone could get FIOS!

The other really big problem is regulation.  In most of the country Verizon is having to go to each and every municipality in order to be able to provide tv service to their fiber customers.  That's what Verizon really wants, the triple play. They won't make their money back just on internet service.  They have to be able to provide TV, Telephone,  and Internet.  We're lucky in Texas because our legislature passed a law a couple years ago that allows new TV Cable/ Fiber providers to solicit this at the state level instead of having to go to each and every little town/city/municipality.
