It should be noted that it's much easier and less expensive to deploy, upgrade and maintain network infrastructure in extreme high density metropolises such as Tokyo and Seoul than in the low density cities and sprawling suburbs of Canada.

It also costs much more to network Canadian and US cities than southeast asian cities which are much closer together.

I believe I had 160mb cable in Tokyo for around $60 a couple of years ago. It was pretty amazing but also completely superfluous.

But for the record, I do believe that corporations like Bell and Rogers are engaged in collusion to artificially inflate pricing and limit competition.
