Japan and Korea Lead World in Broadband

The United States, birthplace of the Internet, ranks 11th while South Korea is first. Japan, although 10th on the chart, is expected to rise rapidly as their high speed internet connections are now both the fastest and cheapest.

Is the price (average of $53 per month in the U.S.) the reason why Americans arn't switching over to high speed internet? I think $53 per month is a little more than people are willing to spend. Myself, I believe it to be a bargain, but then again, I am one of those computer geek types...
