I read an interesting post on http://slashdot.org about the problem of high prices for internet connectivity in the US. And I had to laugh, because those rates are very low compared to the rates in Canada. But then I thought, if US rates are consider too high compared to those in Europe and Japan, what does mean for *our* rates? They must be unconscionably high (which is just what many people have been arguing).
