    Japan's broadband race shows no signs of slowing. In July, Softbank
    unveiled a 26-megabit service. On Oct. 1, eAccess announced it would
    start the world's first 40-megabit ADSL service, even as most U.S.
    ADSL providers are still struggling to offer 1.5 megabits per second.
    NTT East is expected to be close behind. Softbank won't say whether it
    will follow suit.

    Japan had 11.8 million high-speed Internet subscribers as of August,
    up more than sevenfold from 1.6 million two years earlier. That gives
    it a broadband penetration rate of almost 10%, around U.S. levels.

    Mind boggling 15 Mbs, with:

    1) Large video library on demand,

    2) super-high speed Web access,

    3) voice calls to ANY subscriber ANYWHERE in the country at local
    rates with a tentative committment to Europe-wide service in the
    proximate future,

    4) Worldwide Sat-TV.

    All for 80 to 90 Euro/mo.
