Okay, so Canada is not North America anymore? WTF? Seriously just because it has America in the name does not mean only the US is included in it. United States of America. See, America is included because it is PART OF America.
****, I hate ignorant people.
The test from Japan does not have to be on fibre either. That is 77 Megabits, approximately, which is entirely possible over coper cat5 cable.
For example, at my house with Cox cable, 20 Mbit down, 2 Mbit up I got: 15694 kb/sec down, 1707 kb/sec up.
Japan has everyone in Europe (except Sweden and Norway) and everyone in America (that is, North and South America, yes that includes the USA too) beat when it comes to ISP speeds. Not only that, but they have the fastest wireless broadband access they can get. 3G that people are clamouring over in the US is nothing in Japan.
The Japanese also get cheaper access to the Internet than others in the rest of the world (comparing speeds that is). I pay $56 a month for my 20 Mbit down, 2 Mbit up. In Japan that would buy me 100 Mbit down/up, at the least. For about $80 I could get a gigabit connection in Japan.
