Dan needs cable internet in vancouver

Let me add something:

Given the advent of DOCSIS 3.0 in the US and the continued rollout of FiOS and U-verse, the 33 million figure given by Parks is a very real possibility for 2012. Unfortunately, the 10Mbps-plus goodness is unlikely to be spread around evenly. In areas where a fiber-loving telecom is going head-to-head with a cable company (think Verizon FiOS vs. Comcast High Speed Internet in Boston), we'll see a concentration of homes with superfast broadband. But those living in areas with little high-speed competition (like Denver, which is served by Qwest) are likely to be stuck with single-digit broadband speeds when 2012 rolls around.
