Hm... I have over 50 56K modems here never used in this century. :iagree: 2 weeks ago, I was still near Gwangju, barely able to use a computer surrounded with smoking and gaming children. (I'm now back near Seoul.)
Since this is 2005, most people with computers in South Korea can enjoy HDTV and VDSL/FTTH, but wasn't it over a decade ago when Bill Gates wondered loudly "what if internet... for free or nearly free?" Average cost to have VDSL/FTTH here is about US$15-US$30 per month which is about US$500-US$1K in just 3 years. For people who sometimes need to download and upload at 100Mbps or over but use Internet just less than 10 hours (or 1TB bandwidth) in a month on average, basic-rate service must be free.
