European homes now have 100 percent broadband coverage

Satellite-based Internet access has reached the last 0.6 percent of homes that copper wires and mobile networks didn't, the European Commission announces.

Quote:
Every citizen in the European Union now has broadband Internet access at home, a goal the European Commission said it reached before its year-end deadline.

Pushing the needle all the way to 100 percent is satellite-based Internet access, which reached the 0.6 percent of homes that wired connections and mobile networks couldn't reach, the EC announced Thursday. DSL, cable TV, and fiber-optic lines reach 96.1 percent, and mobile networks reach 99.4 percent.

Sounds great and my broadband is a little faster than dial up.

A lot of areas in the US really have slow broadband. If faster connections are available, ISPs charge exorbitant prices for that tier which basically defeats the purpose of providing faster internet in those areas.

It isn't all that fast in most places, but "good enough" for most people in Uk, it seems.

How much doe's a broadband satellite connection cost? Would it's use attract the unwelcome attentions of USAF drones?
