Yahoo! BB Brings 1GB fiber to the Desktop in Tokyo Japan

Recommended Posts

Recently there have been ads running on bb.yahoo.co.jp for a mere 79.99/m clients in japan will be provided fiber termination at the house with the first two months free @ 100Mbps. Once the backbone installation is complete they will provide 1GB connection to the infrastructure. That is amazing.

it's actually becoming common here - at least three companies now offer  a 100mbps connection, hooking into a 1gbps local backbone, hooked into a 60gbps national backbone.  it's still pretty expensive, but the prices are dropping constantly. the main problem is actually getting it, given that it's very common for landowners to have an "arrangement" with a local provider - they limit competition by only allowing one company to hook up the apartment complex, and get nice kickbacks..

interestingly, i can pull 20mbps on my connection on a japanese server, but testmy.net's servers generaly show me at around 4*5 mbps, so there's no point in posting my results...

this sounds like a monopoly dont u think guys?

like an ISP does a contract before hand with a building so in the building all you can have is this

not good
