Description: HONG KONG residents can enjoy astoundingly fast broadband at an astoundingly low price. It became available last year, when a scrappy company called Hong Kong Broadband Network introduced a new option for its fiber-to-the-home service: a speed of 1,000 megabits a second Ã¢â‚¬â€ known as a Ã¢â‚¬Å“gigÃ¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬â€ for less than $26 a month.
Questions for discussion:Ã‚Â
- Why has this superior broadband service not spread to other markets in North America?
- How can this be remedied?
- How would a forced change to upgrade service affect the financial status of current service providers?
- How could this be mitigated?
