Default japans 50 Mbps internet

I keep hearing about how Japan has internet transfer speeds at an average of 50 Mbps for about the price we pay for DSL/Cable. Does anyone know what kind of technology they use to accomplish this? Is it fiber-optic or what?

No way they have internet that fast. If they do have internet that fast it has to be fiber-optic thats the fastest out as of right now..

I wouldn't be suprised if Japan had such a fast national network...considering their country is about the size of California. It's probably T1 or T3, Fiber-Optics can go way faster. Most colleges and universities have T1/T3 internet connections. Japan has way more than just Sony and cell phones. Matsushita? Panasonic? NEC Mitsubishi? There are a whole slew of Japanese countries that provide tons of technological products to us.

Speaking of internet connections...some future technologies that will rock your socks:

802.16e:
WiMAX promises to bring high-speed wireless broadband Internet access to the masses, and 802.16e promises to give you more than a 1Mbps connection from your car or moving vehicle.

802.20:
Much like 802.16e, 802.20 brings WiMAX to mobile users. The difference? It's designed to deliver a connection even if you're moving as fast as 155 mph, so now you'll be able to shop online from your private helicopter.

BPL (Broadband over Power Line):
Forget using your phonelines or Co-Axial Cable plugs to get Internet, you can recieve High-speed Internet access from any power outlet in the house...awesome, huh?

HomePlug AV:
Nothing new, the HomePlug concept is pretty old, but AV now allows up to 200Mbps to be networked through your power outlets.

The future is looking good.
