This is pretty much just for the US, but personally I think ALL US based LQer's should take the census (direct link). If this site is correct, there is a load of misinformation out there. I did a search and according to the government statistics, I should have a choice of 12 different ISP providers, which is complete manure. I can get Comcast or I can get dial-up.

The state of broadband in the US is pitiful. Maybe something like this will help counter the corporate bullshit responsible for the sad state of US broadband.
