Fiber Optics in JAPAN, and AMERICA, to the best of my knowledge
The reason America is so behind in internet speed, is because we have very few competitors. The main ones, verizon, cox, and whatnot, get a little better, but are still expensive. They have to keep up with eachother, getting a little better each time.
In Japan, however, they have many providers, each competing fiercly, neck and neck. If one gets better, they all strive to surpass eachother, and still be cheap.
Cox is the main problem in America, though.
