Chinese government plans massive broadband rollout for 2013
The Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced this week that it plans to significantly increase the number of homes with broadband access. The Chinese government wants to get broadband access (4M or higher) into the homes of more than 70% of the country's internet users by the end of 2013.
The push to get more users online is part of China's 2013 Broadband China project aiming to increase fiber-to-the-home coverage by more than 35 million households. The number of homes with access to the service last year increased to 49%, with 94 million users covered.
Minister Miao Wei also said that China plans to add 1.3 million wireless hotspots.
The ministry had previously stated that it planned to have broadband coverage for 250 million users in China by the end of 2015.
Companies in the U.S. are also looking to expand fiber connections to consumers, albeit slowly. Google recently launched its Google Fiber service in Kansas City, and users are
seeing download speeds approaching 700 Mbps

RE: Bigger issue with population density than the US

First of all, the word you were looking for was "shill" - not "shrill." Secondly...you think low population density is a stupid excuse? I suppose you're so brilliant that you can tell us all a way to lay fiber optic cable to every person in every part of the USA in a cost-effective manner?
Go on. We're waiting.
...no? So you don't actually know any ways to bend the laws of physics, get millions of miles of fiber optic cable for free, armies of laborers to install it for free, so on ad so forth. Huh.
As for being hired by the "corps" to "feed the masses" this garbage...haven't seen any such paychecks. But then again, the only person stupid enough to suggest that that must be the problem, instead of, you know, *reality*, would be a banjo-playing hillbilly like you with his eyes on his first cousin. Like yourself.
