lpress writes "Symmetric, 100 Mbps service in Stockholm costs 
$11/month. Conditions in every city are different, but part of the 
explanation for the low cost is that the city owns a municipal fiber 
network reaching every block. They lease network access to anyone who 
would like to offer service. The ISPs, including incumbent telephone 
and cable companies, compete on an equal footing."

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
