Description: HONG KONG residents can enjoy astoundingly fast broadband at an astoundingly low price.

Questions for discussion: 

  • Why has this superior broadband service not spread to other markets in North America?
  • How would a forced change to upgrade service affect the financial status of current service providers?
  • How could this be mitigated?
