from japan that seems pretty normal, except for it being available for
such a small proportion of the population.

north america is a ridiculous back-water with insanely high prices for
negligible bandwidth.  in hawai`i i pay $70/mo for just layer two of
768k.  tokyo is significantly less money for usable 100m/100m.
