Good, broadband sucks in the US. Having to download all content would be a miserable failure IMO. I buy some games on steam now, but I still like to have a box for those must have games.

Gigabit LAN and Internet are two different things. You can get broadband easy enough in populated areas, but in rural areas it can be tough. Also, we have little choice when it comes to provider so prices usually suck. In most areas a single cable company or phone company will have a local monopoly over broadband. In my area I have two choices, Charter Cable or AT&T DSL.

Yeah, we're far from gigabit broadband speeds. The fastest I can get from my ISP is 20Mb, but it costs around $100/month. Right now I have 8/1 service for $30 a month, damn good deal. The fastest service that AT&T DSL offers is 6 Mb. RoadRunner is very similar to Charter. The best service I have heard of is Verizon FiOS. They offer up to 50Mb service. They have a very limited service area though.

No disrespect to you WC Annihilus but this is kind of a non-news story.
