At least the US has done something right. Now to block the TWC-Comcast merger and light a fire under TWC's feet to speed up their Internet access to broadband speeds (25Mbps download/3Mbps upload) or better.

@BFeely =
Thank you, but at the end it was up to us and we did good :-)
"Now to block the TWC-Comcast merger and light a fire under TWC's feet to speed up"
Lead the way my friend and show me, how can we put pressure on the almighty Comcast
At the end of 2013, Comcast and Time Warner Cable had about 20.7 million[17] and 11.1 million internet subscribers,[18] respectively. Together, the two companies would control about two-thirds of the broadband cable market, or about 40% of the US wired broadband market as a whole.[19]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comcast-Time_Warner_Cable_merger
It looks like a Monopoly to me, in particular after reading this
However, because wireless internet is generally slower, more expensive, and has much lower data caps, the wireless comparison remains controversial.[21][22]

We will appreciate a link to any group that is taking on this issue

I recalled years ago arguing with a representative of American online and he was telling me how powerful they were, well that was years ago and no, they were not as powerful as they believed to be and the same thing could happen to Comcast
There is only one boss. The customer. And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else

There are still too few ISPs in the US and these players (Comcast, etc.) have tried to prevent local governments from creating their own fiber-optic networks.
I would feel better if Comcast and Times-Warner were to dissapear.

I'd love to have cheap fiber and not wait hours to upload a 3-minute HD video clip to YouTube because the local cable monopoly keeps upload speeds slow.

As always MyxT, you killed me :-)
You were able to bring a smile to my face, when I thought that, today of all days it would be quite unlikely. to say the least

I agree ...
From Moscow, Russia I could upload a YouTube video 3x faster than I could from Florida.

My internet bill was equal to $15 a month. 50 mbps down and 20 mbps upload.
My cell phone bill was = to $12 a month for unlimited everything.
Crazy what they charge us here in the U.S.
