WIMAX in Korea ok, but I'm in the UK

Through Facebook I found this view on 2008, based on a visit to Korea. Sounds like video conferencing is a reality somewhere. So Adobe probably plan around their most advanced market. But if people in the USA think their bandwidth is lagging a bit, what to expect in the UK? There is just a sense of multiple realities. Maybe next year I will think about Acrobat Services dotcom as just out there somewhere where dotcom is possible. The UK site will be based on actual observation or news of current reality. WWWatford remains with the Adobe Classic scope, print and 'classic publishing' maybe drifting into the text web and design influenced by flat pages.

I think the BIG difference here (USA) is bandwidth, and the cost - not the infrastructure or software development development

I think this guy said it best (as to why we don't have cheap fast here in the US;

“This is quasi-monopoly pricing, pure and simple. Prices should be plummeting and bandwidth increasing because of the exponential increase in the processing and transmission capability of the computers that run the Internet. Instead, with only 2 broadband "competitors" in most markets, companies can largely do whatever they want. In Japan and South Korea, people pay $10-$20/mo for 100Mbit connections without any limits. We pay 3 or 4 times that price for less than 1/10th the bandwidth, and soon we're going to have caps placed on top of that. ”
