International Lessons

What happened to all that Dark Fiber?

Broadband access in Europe and Japan is faster and cheaper than in the US. I thought the US was #1 in everything, what happened?

 

I pay $50 per month for supposedly 15Mbps, but I only get 3Mbps most days. In Germany you get the same speed, plus cable channels for the same price.

 

and lastly, why is the US broken, unlike Germany and Japan. Nothing works here for the average citizen, not telecommunications, health care, transportation, food and product safety, or education. We are a slightly richer Mexico, what happened?
