continues its world domination tour, after hitting the Twin Cities
, Japanese cable provider J:COM has rolled out the tech in half its systems, with plans to have it everywhere by the end of July. So far, J:COM is delivering its NET Ultra service 160Mb down/10Mb up for about $60 a month, $5 more than the next highest tier -- compare that to Comcast's 50Mb/5Mb service for $149.99. Of course in Japan, FTTP and high speed DSL systems have much higher penetration, prompting the quick rollout. While most of us are envious of Minnesota's early taste of speed, it's nice to know even they have someone to look up to.
